Why did you choose Topeka as the place to build your career? I love being an advocate for our students and working each day to ensure they receive the best education possible. I grew up in Topeka and feel fortunate to be able to give back to our community.
Where do you see Topeka in 10 years? It is my hope that Topeka receives national recognition for excellence in education and our successful collaboration with community agencies to support children and families. I look forward to continued increases in student achievement and watching former students become leaders in our community.
