I began my teaching career at McKinley Elementary School in 1991. I taught Special Education at McKinley for 5 years. In 1996, I began teaching Kindergarten at McKinley and I continued in that position for the next 9 years. Following the birth of my daughter, I moved to a part-time Title I position at Lincoln Elementary. I have remained in that position for the last 7 years.
I am married to a local realtor, Gary Classen. We have 2 sons and a daughter who are all currently in the Liberal school system. We are very active members of First Southern Baptist Church.
I love to spend time with my family, read, cook, travel and spend time with friends. I love my job at Lincoln Elementary! :)
