Welcome to Kindergarten! 


I have been teaching Kindergarten in the Northwest R-1 School District since 2002.  I taught my first 10 years in kindergarten at Maple Grove Elementary. I made Murphy Elementary my new home in 2012.  I am truly dedicated to teaching Kindergarten students!


 Our classroom motto is to be a PIRATE.  PIRATE stands for Prepared, Informed, Ready, and  Together Every day.   I always look forward to being a Pirate on our Crew's journey with my families!


Kindergarten is a special year for children as they learn many new skills and concepts.  Kindergarten students grow so much over the school year.  Their growth is always astounding  to me.
