Our teachers work tirelessly to educate and care for our students so the time has come to celebrate them! We also invite all moms or special friends of our Berryton Buffalos to come on Friday morning May 6 and enjoy donuts between 8:15-8:55.

About Me


As an elementary principal I enjoy working collaboratively with staff members to support student learning. I am passionate about continuing to learn professionally, and building relationships with staff and students at Berryton Elementary. When I'm not serving at Berryton Elementary I am usually with my husband and two sons. We can be found at sporting events, cheering on Kansas State University, or just enjoying a movie at home.
