Welcome to Bradley Elementary! What a fabulous place for learning, your child will build memories here that will last a lifetime! My career in education started with teaching Kindergarten for twelve years. I chose to make a "huge" jump to First Grade and stayed there for thirteen years. While working as a Curriculum Instruction Specialist at Fort Leavenworth for three years, I have had the opportunity to see all students at all levels achieving success! My heart took me back to the First Grade classroom and here I am on Year Thirty-One still enjoying every minute!!!!
Although my heart bleeds Kansas State University purple, Emporia State University is the home of my Bachelors of Science in Education and Baker University is the home of my Masters of Arts in Education. It is my belief that all children can learn and it is the role of every educator to engage them with this task! First Grade is the basement to all other grades! The foundation established here promotes success for the rest of a child's school career. What an important educational role that I am privileged to be a part of!
