I am happily teaching 1st grade for the 15th year! I've been a kindergarten teacher and a 2nd grade teacher, but I found my home in 1st grade. I have been a teacher at Traut since we opened in 1993 and I do not see myself at any other school.
My husband Kevin and I are the proud parents of three Traut alumni- all daughters and all grown up. We have three mini dachshunds at home that are a source of constant entertainment and fun. I am looking forward to another great year!
We have a wonderful staff and great leadership. Our parents are fantastic supporters and volunteers. The students are very interested in learning new things. All the people that make up TCKS are our best asset!
I enjoy running, hiking, reading and recently got a new kayak. We love taking it out on lakes and exploring new places.
My favorite books are mysteries and historical fiction. My favorite children's author is Cynthia Rylant.
