A Little About Me:

I love our small town of Henderson, TN.  It reminds me of the little town I grew up in Kansas called Independence.  "The Best Little Library Award" was given to The Independence Public Library in 2012.  Inside this library, I feel in love with books.  My mom carried me to storytime as a toddler and I spent many hours studying there as a teenager.  I am married to my college sweetheart and we have two children.

 A Little About My Education/Work:

My education includes a Bachelor's in Education with an emphasis in Early Childhood, and a Master's in Education with an emphasis in School Counseling both from Freed-Hardeman University. I taught PreK and Kindergarten for eight years, before becoming a school counselor.  I worked with 9th and 10th graders in high school as my first counseling job.  I am grateful to be back in the elementary setting serving children.

A Little Bit About What I Teach:

In my classroom students learn a variety of academic, social/emotional, and career skills. I meet with each class at East for thirty minutes every week. We discuss and learn about the following topics:

 

  • Character Education
  • Stranger Danger
  • Fire Prevention and Safety
  • Personal Health and Safety
  • Drug Awareness and Prevention
  • Conflict Resolution and Stress Management
  • Good and Bad Touches
  • Bully Prevention
  • Positive Decision Making Skills
  • Other approved topics requested by students, parents, teachers or administration

 

A Little Bit About My School Counseling Philosophy:

I provide solution-focused brief individual, small group, and crisis counseling as needed. I use solution-focused counseling because it focuses on solutions instead of the problems.  My counseling is future-focused and goal-directed. My goals include the child learning and practicing the skills he/she needs to succeed in school. My hope is to teach these skills in such a way that a child can have the confidence to face challenges on his/her own and no longer need my help.

Please contact me if I can help you or your child.
