Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year. I am very excited to teach Kindergarten this year.  I hope they are excited as well! My goal is to help your child learn in the best way possible. They will learn an incredible amount of academics as well as emotional and social skills. You will be amazed of how much your child will learn throughout the year! 


If you ever have any questions or concerns please feel free to email me at or contact me at school 496-8401.




This will be my 14th year at Picotte Elementary. I have taught 12 years in Kindergarten. My first year of teaching I taught 2nd grade and taught one year in 1st grade. I recently finished and received my Masters in Educational Administration from Concordia University. I am very excited after 13 years to continue my education and further my knowledge in a new educational field.

I have been married for 12 years to my husband Steve. We also have 3 daughters. Madeline is 11 years old and will be in 6th grade at Buffett this year. Ella is 7 1/2 years old and in 2nd Grade at Picotte. My youngest is Evelyn and she is 5 years old and going to Preschool for one more year.

My hobbies include spending time with my family, golfing when ever I get a chance, singing, and dancing( I used to take an adult tap class that kept me on my toes, but with 3 girls they are the ones keeping me on my toes).

I grew up in Blair Nebraska, which is a country mile North of Omaha (20 miles) if everyone is familiar with the wonderful Woodhouse Ford commercial! I went to college at Kansas State University, where I was a member of the KSU Marching Band Color Guard for 4 years. It was a great time! I got to go to all the KSU football home games as well as all bowl games. Nothing like performing in front of 60,000 people!!!   Go Wildcats!!!
