During my 9 years as an educator, I've spent time teaching: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade (also K-5 in a summer school setting), 7 years in Iowa, and the past 2 years in Texas. This year I will be in 1st again but at a NEW school! I am BEYOND excited to start this new journey in the fall of 2018!
I am passionate about: creating a classroom that becomes a family as we get to know each other and build relationships, creating an environment that promotes excitement about learning, strategies to increase engagement and student success, Action Based Learning, technology, flexible seating, teaching students 21-century skills, and all things innovation!
I attended Cornell College where I received a Bachelor of Arts in both Elementary Education and Kinesiology. I also received my Coaching Endorsement and coached high school soccer for 5 years. I've also spent time teaching FITNESS! #endorphinaddict
On Saturday, July 14th, 2018 I married my best friend. With Christ by our side, we are walking through our first year of marriage!
