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 active duty Army. My daughter, Courtney, currently works with individuals in an independent living house. My three grandchildren are Preston, Aubrey, and Noah.
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.
