I graduated from Lovell in 1986 and attended NWC for two years. I then transferred to the University of Wyoming earning a degree in Elementary education. I later joined a group of teachers and received a Masters in Reading and Literacy.
I have lived in Lovell most of my life, graduating from LHS. I have taught at the Lovell Elementary since 1992. I am married to Tim Winland also of Lovell and have two boys Brady and Kirby.
