About Me

Educational History:

My High School years were spent in the small Wisconsin town of Platteville, attending Platteville High School.  I graduated in 2001 and continued my education at Culver-Stockton College in Canton, MO www.culver.edu. Many former family members including my paternal gradfather attended ahead of me, so very quickly I felt at home.  During junior year, I decided to study abroad and attending spring classes at St. Mary’s College in Twickenham, England http://www.stmarys.ac.uk/. After graduating in 2006 (yes it took 5 years, but I graduated with 197 credits!) I spent 6 years teaching before going back to school and receiving my Master of Natural Science in Science Education from SEMO www.semo.edu in 2014.

Current Position:

I began teaching at Sikeston High School in August of 2008. I taught for 7 years before leaving for one year to teach in another district.  I am now in my 9th year teaching in Sikeston and I currently teach Biology I and Honors/Dual Credit Biology II.

Previous Position:

I taught junior high science (7-9) in the Wellsville-Middletown district for 2 years.

I taught high school biology in the Ferguson-Florissant district for 1 year.

Family Information:

I met my husband, Abe Leach (aleach@pcsd32.com), when we were both students at Culver-Stockton College.  We began teaching for the Sikeston Public Schools in the fall of 2008 and have been married since June 2011.  

Personal Information:

When not at school, I keep myself busy with a wide variety of activities.  I love reading, baking, spending time with family and friends, and traveling.  I aspire to be like Ms. Throop and travel the world in retirement, if not before.
