Missy graduated from Missouri State University with a BS in Elementary Education, Early Childhood Emphasis. She was born to be a teacher and knew this was always the path for her. In addition to being a classroom teacher, Missy also aided in grant writing and co-authored a literacy curriculum through Mega Bloks. Missy considers herself very lucky as she has called TSMSOC home since 2006. She has worked with Pre-K, Kindergarten but primarily First Grade.
Learning should be fun and relevant. Every child should feel successful, capable and celebrated while learning. TSMSOC allows Missy to live true to her philosophy while at the same time providing a safe, warm and welcoming environment. Everyday is a new day; a day for learning, laughing, creating and growing at TSMSOC. It is her goal that students leave her class feeling accomplished, proud and happy.
Missy is a wife to Steve, mom to Molly and Kate as well as a teacher of first graders. She loves fitness, is an ACE certified personal trainer, baking, singing, dancing, and spending time with friends and family. She incorporates all these passions into the school day while celebrating special moments, big and small with her students.
Live Life….. Be Fit…… Have Fun!
