Principal's Corner

Welcome to Knob Noster Middle School!

Hello, KNMS Families!! Welcome to the start of the 2015-16 school year.  I hope that you are having a great summer and enjoying time with family and friends.  We are looking forward to the beginning of the school year and are excited about some upcoming activities.

For starters, I feel honored and blessed to be the principal of this fantastic school.  I am coming to Knob Noster from Maryville, Missouri. I have 20 years in education, all of which has been at the middle school level.  I was the assistant principal at Maryville Middle School for the past 10 years and prior to that, I taught sixth grade science. I was born and raised in Maryville and graduated from Northwest Missouri State University. I am a proud Bearcat!   My husband Tom teaches and coaches at Warrensburg High School. Our son Payton will be attending Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia this fall and our daughter, Baylee attends Northwest Missouri State University.  

I am passionate about the importance of middle level education.  This stage of a child’s life is such a pivotal time in their social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth. I am confident that the programs and people we have in place will continue to foster positive development for all KNMS students.  

Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions, suggestions or concerns.  I look forward to working with you and your children.

I look forward to a FABULOUS school year.
