Coaching Connection

Keeping Classroom Learning Alive


I'm so excited to be starting this year with a new focus and the opportunity to work with many teachers I have not had the pleasure of doing so in the past. I am fortunate to be the instructional coach for Chinn, Gerner, Graden, and Renner.

My background...

I grew up in the Park Hill School District and attended Southeast, Park Hill South Junior High, and Park Hill High School. I obtained my undergraduate degree from UMKC and did my student teaching in 1st grade at Renner Elementary. My first teaching job was in Blue Valley, where I taught 1st grade for 6 years and Kindergarten for 3 years. I then came back home to the Park Hill School district where I taught kindergarten at Hawthorn for 3 years and am now in my 9th year as an instructional coach. I love my job as an instrucitonal coach and am looking forward to stretching myself as I work with teachers PreK-5. My favorite part of my job is being in classrooms learning alongside students and teachers. I am looking forward to learning from you all!
