It is with great pleasure that I am introducing myself as the Coffeyville Public Schools Curriculum Director. Education is definitely my passion and I am excited to be a part of a district that strives for excellence, as well as being innovative toward educating the students of Coffeyville Public Schools. We are a district at the cutting edge of education with a birth to 4 Early Childhood Center, the largest elementary school in the state of Kansas, and a secondary education with so many opportunities for our young adults to be prepared for a career or college. This district is moving in the right direction and there is so much the educational system has to be proud of. It’s a great privilege to be a part of the direction that this district is going. I have18 years of experience in education, while being a leader in the many aspects of education, including school improvement. I received my Bachelor of Science Degree from Pittsburg State University in Elementary Education in 1996, and then returned to earn my Masters of Science Degree in Technology Education with an Emphasis in Library Media in 2007. I am currently working toward a Building and District Leadership Licensure from Newman University. I plan to receive full Licensure credit in the summer of 2018. After 2 years in Missouri, I taught at Holy Name in Coffeyville, USD 445, and Caney Valley School District. I have been the Curriculum Director at Coffeyville for 3 years. My husband Travis is currently the Lead Principal at FKHS in Coffeyville and we have two grown boys, Hunter and Colton.
