Over the past thirteen years, I have had the great opportunity of serving the  students, staff, and community of the Clearwater R-1 School District.

I have enjoyed my work immensely. I have been able to wear many hats and have had the pleasure of seeing the library program develop into an integral part of the Clearwater School system with a positive impact on student achievement. It has been exciting to renovate the facility, revitalize the book collection, and bring the makerspace to life, but I feel the greatest accomplishment of an educator occurs in the lives of students. I treasure each one of you and feel as though I have done as much learning as I have teaching.

I look forward to watching your continued success and will miss you terribly as we all take on new challenges. Please accept my heartfelt thanks and appreciation for being a small part of your lives.

An incredible opportunity for Clearwater High School students! This Thursday, area businesses and career professionals will be on hand to visit personally with students in grades 9-12. Whether you are looking to be hired now or at some point in your future, this is your chance to gather information about a career, make a good impression on a potential employer, even get interviewed on the spot!
