Hi there! My name is Mrs. Finley and this is my 6th year teaching 4th grade.  
 
I spent my first two years teaching 4th grade in an English-immersion school in El Salvador! Since then, I returned home to Shawnee to teach at Clear Creek. 
 
I grew up in USD 232, attending Clear Creek, Mize, Monticello Trails, and Mill Valley! In the spring, I coach the shot put and discus throwers on the track and field team at Mill Valley. This will be my 3rd year as a coach.
 
My husband Mason and I have two dogs, Blu and Denfi. We love to take to them to the park and play! Mason and I also love to travel back to Colorado to see his family, and to the Lake of the Ozarks to spend time with mine. 
 
I am very excited to be starting another year in 4th grade and look forward to spending it with you!

I love teaching!  I’ve taught 4th and 5th grade and truly believe that 4th grade is the most important year of a student’s career. 

I found my passion for education after having been a substitute teacher and returned to the classroom to obtain my licensure in 2010.   I have a BS in Communications Management from Missouri State University (1990) and obtained my Elementary Education licensure from Ottawa University. 

Family is very important to me.  My husband and I have two grown children, Katie and Mitch, a bird dog named Dakota and one grand dog.  We spend our time together traveling, cheering for our favorite teams, and creating recipes and meals together.

I graduated from Kansas State University with my undergraduate degree in teaching, and then I earned my Master's Degree in education from Mid America Nazarene University.
 
I love to spending time with my family.  My husband's name is Randy, and we have three children.  My oldest daughter, Madison, is a 3rd grade teacher in Basehor, my son, Mitchell, is a junior at KU, and my youngest daughter, Morgan, is a freshman at Creighton University.
 
In my spare time I love to exercise, read, and hang out with my family and friends.
