About Vicki Adams

Our Family returned to Western Kansas in 2003 from the Kansas City Area.  With family in Western Kansas, Colorado and California, it has made everyone just that much closer!

Our family loves to travel.  Through my children and their music I have had many opportunities to travel not only in the U.S. but also to visit England and Italy. We also have a special place in our hearts for Disney! We love to go as much as possible! Two of my three grown children, a daugther and a son, live in Liberal and both work for USD 480.  My youngest son now lives in Seattle, Washington.  

Even though I spent my childhood years in Southern California, and my high school and college years in Colorado,  Kansas is now my home.  I earned my Undergraduate Degree from Univerity of Northern Colorado - Go UNC Bears,  and my Master's Degree in Special Education from Emporia State University - Go Hornets!
