A little about me:

 

I grew up in western Pennsylvania and graduated from Clarion University of Pennsylvania with my

Bachelor of Special Education in 1985. I have since earned two Master Degrees including one in

Educational Psychology from the Wichita State University and, later, one in Building Leadership from

Baker University. I came to the Mulvane School District after working in a variety of capacities in the

field of special education. Previous job titles include special education teacher, Community-Based

Instruction Coordinator, Behavior Analyst, instructional coach, Special Education Coordinator, and most

recently, Assistant Director of Special Education. I have been blessed to work with students with

disabilities for a total of 34 years. This is my 12th year with the Mulvane School District. I am proud to be

a part of a special education department that employs a team of highly qualified professional educators

and support personnel that work together to make our school district a great place for all students to

work and learn each day! 

 

A little about my family:

 

My husband retired as a Master Sergeant after being employed as an aircraft mechanic for 35 years for

the Kansas Air National Guard. He is currently the owner of an appliance repair business that continues

to keep him very busy. We have a blended family with two adult children. Markie lives in Oklahoma with

her husband Brian. We enjoy spending time with our two grandsons, Landon and Grayson, when they

come to visit! Our son, Caleb, is a senior in the engineering department at Wichita State University

where he is majoring in Computer Science and Math. We are very proud of them both! Rick and I try to

find more time for travel as we are now “empty nesters”.
