Graduating from Emporia State University in 1994 with a BSE in Social Science, I began teachingthe day school at a residential boys' home for The Farm, Inc. where I discovered differentiatedinstruction and how to engage students well beyond my formal pre-service teaching instruction. Itaught all subjects to 11 boys at a time, ages 11-18, at the home's dining room table, using 20year old textbooks.Eventually uncovering a lifelong passion, in 2004, I earned my Master’s degree in Psychology andSpecial Education with an emphasis in Gifted Education. I began working as the Gifted ServicesCoordinator at Emporia Middle School and also serving as NCA Steering Committee Chair.
