Every child deserves a champion- a parent, a teacher, an adult, who will NEVER give up on them, who understands the power of connection and
insists that they become the best that they can be.

Hi! My name is
I want to welcome you and your family to my school website here at University Academy. I am very excited to be your child's Third Grade teacher for the 2016-2017 school year. This is my fourth year as a Third Grade teacher at UA, but my experience as an educator totals 43 years. Previously, I taught in the Diocese of Salina, the Archdiocese of Kansas in Kansas City, and then in the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph. For me, teaching is a "calling," and not an occupation. I love my life as a teacher, and I am blessed to be part of the University Academy family. Every staff member goes above and beyond to provide each student in our school a quality education. I am looking forward to the 2016-2017 school year as being the BEST EVER!
I am pleased to announce the following students as "Terrific Third Graders:"
These students are in my homeroom.
