Bachelor of Science in English Education with a 6-12 English Certification
Master of Arts in Counseling with a K-12 School Counseling Certificate
My teaching and counseling experience is the following:
I have taught English in grades 6-12 including dual credit English for seniors. I went to graduate school in 2006 to become a school counselor. I have been a school counselor since graduating in 2008.
I married Todd Stiffler in 2010. This Missouri girl met that Kansas Cowboy and I left my friends and family and moved to Kansas. ("friends don't let friends move to Kansas":) We live in the flint hills north of Toronto, KS with my daughter, Emmie (14), our four dogs, and two horses. I have two sons, Austin, 21, and Reid, 18. My sons both graduated from Yates Center High School and my daughter is in the 8th grade at Yates Center.
I love to garden and cook and eat. (notice a pattern?) I enjoy spending time with my husband and kids and love to travel. My dogs are also my kids and I enjoy just being outside with nature and my pets. I live in one of the most beautiful places on earth and love the fresh air of the Kansas prairie.
