Welcome! I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year in second grade. I have taught in the Waynesville School District since 2006. I started my career in second grade and then moved to first grade for 8 years and have now moved back to second.
I am married to John Snider. My daughter, Amanda Ross, is a teacher at Freedom Elementary. Her husband, Ted, is retired Army. My daughter, Courtney, currently lives and works. My eight grandchildren are Preston, Aubrey, Kaylee, Noah, Addy, Levi, Oliver and Patrick.
I am a graduate of the Waynesville R-VI School District and have lived in the area for the majority of my life. I was actually a student at East Elementary. My mom was born and raised here and met my dad when he was stationed at Fort Leonard Wood many years ago. I have two sisters and a brother.
My favorite hobby is to read. I read almost a book daily during summer break and I hope to instill in my students a love of books and reading. I also like to travel, especially to the beach.
