Vineland Counselor

Image result for about me     

This will be my fifth year in the district as a school counselor. I am very excited to be in such a great building!

I grew up in DeSoto and graduated from DeSoto High school in 1999. I received my Bachelors of Arts in Behavioral Science and Masters of Arts in Elementary and Secondary School Counseling and Psychological Examiner all for Missouri Baptist.

In my spare time I enjoy coaching Soccer for DeSoto Parks and Recreation. I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends outdoors and shopping. I am married and have a daughter who will be a fourth grader at Vineland and a son that will be a preschooler at St. Rose.

At Vineland, I am in charge of grades 3-6. I facilitate monthly classroom lessons teaching the 8 character traits of Vineland. I am also in charge of all IEP’s for grades 3-6. Additionally I am in charge of Peer Mediators, which is for students in grade 5th & 6th that help with conflict resolution of students. I am also a sponsor for Character Kids, which is grade grade 3rd thru 5th, that help our teacher organization of PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention Support) make student led decisions.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I am look forward to what the 2017-2018 school year has to bring.
