Third Grade Teacher


Welcome to Mt. Ayr Elementary! I am currently in my 36th year of teaching. Twenty-nine of those years have been in Mt. Ayr. Before coming to Mt. Ayr I taught in Sabula, Diagonal, and Arispe. In 1981 I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education with minors in Learning Disabilities and Special Education from Northwest Missouri State University. In 1989, I completed a Masters of Science Degree in Elementary Education with a major in Learning Disabilities also from Northwest. I have a reading endorsement as well. I am currently serving on the Lead Team as a model teacher and have previously served as a mentor teacher.

I live in Mt. Ayr with my husband Gary. We have four children, Rachel (Michael) Inloes, Cody (Stephanie) Sobotka, Matt (fiancee' Caitlin) Sobotka, and Alex Sobotka. We also have four grandchildren Nathan, Julia, Carson and Tatum. I enjoy reading, traveling and sports photography.
