I've been teaching for eight years in Des Moines, Iowa. I've taught 7th grade Reading and Language Arts, 4th grade (all subjects), and now I teach 5th grade Reading.
I'm most concerned with making learning fun! I love to teach students in a meaningful, exciting way! I love being able to connect with my students one-on-one and learning and growing with them each year!
My Favorite Teacher Award - Received in May 2010
I was born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa and have attended Des Moines Public Schools my whole life. I attended the University of Northern Iowa and received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Reading. I am now back with Des Moines Public Schools, this time as a teacher, and I couldn't be more honored!
I live in Des Moines, Iowa with my husband, daughter, and our dog, Chase!
