I started at THS early in the year of 2013 as a Special Education Para and became a Job Coach the following year.
I grew up in Kansas City Kansas but lived in Ottawa, Ks from 1999-2012, when we made the move to Tonganoxie.. I have 2 kids: Ally, graduate of Ottawa High School, Class of 2008, is a Manager at a retail store at Oak Park Mall, and Zack, THS grad, Class of 2014, is attending Washburn University as a Political Sciences Major.
I have been a Loyal Royal since my daddy took me to my first baseball game in 1976 - no, I'm not telling how old I was! I love my job. I love the kids I work with. And I love my co-workers.
UPDATE - I'm now a GRAMMA! My daughter gave birth to my first grandchild, Wesley Owen Brooks, on June 1, 2016. My heart is overflowing with love!
