Previous Position

  • Prior to working for USD 402: Augusta Public Schools, I was teaching 7th grade science for Valley Center Middle School as part of USD 262: Valley Center Public Schools. Although my intial degree was for social studies; I decided to take on an open Science position (since I have the endorsement) and have loved teaching science ever since! I taught at Valley Center Middle School for 4 years (all four years science). Prior to USD 262: Valley Center; I gained some experience as a substitute teacher and a paraprofessional for Anthony Middle School (in Manhattan, KS) as part of USD 383: Manhattan/Ogden Public Schools. Each experience has allowed me to grow as an educator & an individual and I continue to learn new things each year that passes by.
