Welcome to Seitz Elementary
Home of the Dragons!
A Geary County USD 475 School


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Dear Seitz Families,

Growing up in a rural Kansas community I always dreamed of the military life. Honor, adventure, and world travels were at the forefront of my mind as a child. Today, I am honored to impact the lives of our nation’s children of the Army as the principal at Seitz Elementary School. In this role I can celebrate and support the life of the military family while living my life right here in Junction City, Kansas. It is truly an honor!

I have been an educator for 21 years and 19 of those years have been in USD 475 Geary County Schools, teaching first and third grades, before moving to Seitz Elementary as assistant principal in 2012. My husband, Randy, and I have raised our own children in the Junction City community and this school district. We are extremely proud of the adults they have become. Our grandsons, Anthony and Alexander, are growing up in JC while our son, Tim, is a teacher at Junction City Middle School. Our daughter, Erica, is married to an Army officer, Jacob. They currently are residing at their first duty station, Fort Drum. Together they have two daughters, Kaisley and Klyne. Erica is also in the teacher profession working with third graders. Though Erica and Jacob are away from Kansas, we are all very passionate about the Junction City/Fort Riley community and are proud to call it home. Welcome to our home! We hope you enjoy it as much as we have I’d be thrilled to help you make community connections. Just let me know what you’d like more information about in Junction City.

I am also extremely proud of our Seitz Elementary staff who will work with your children. They are passionate, caring, and energetic people who truly work together, with your children as our common goal. I’d like to welcome you to visit the school at your convenience and to become an active member of our Booster Club. We believe you are a very important part of your child’s educational team. As a team of educators we know that children learn best in caring communities where they feel safe and significant. Our vision is to build a school-wide community where all staff, students, and their families feel as if they belong at the school and the school belongs to them. Everyone plays a part in making the school feel welcoming and safe.

Please know I am here to work with you and can be reached quite easily at 717.6510 or Never hesitate to get in touch with me. I look forward to meeting you and to an amazing school year as a Seitz Dragon!

Dragons All the Way,​
