I attended Colwich Grade School and graduated from Andale High School. I earned my teaching degree from Fort Hays State University. I have a degree in elementary education with an emphasis in 5-9 English. This begins my 24th year of teaching at CES. Prior to teaching at CES I taught 4th grade for four years in Ellis, KS.
I am married to Paul Kear. We have three sons; Chase, Cole, and Clay. All three attended CES and graduated from Andale High. They all graduated from Hutchinson Community College. Cole earned a welding degree. Chase and Clay both graduated from Fort Hays State. Chase majored in communications, and Clay majored in secondary math education. I have two daughters-in-law. Kaleigh and Brianna are both teachers, also. We have one grandson
