I taught Pre-K for 4 years while earning my BA in Elementary Education. After earning my degree I was a K-2 interventionist for Reading and Math. My position was cut for the following year so I went to a 1st grade classroom. The 15-16 school year I taught 3rd grade and found my happy place!
I am starting a new adventure in my classroom this year called flexible seating! I enjoy providing engaging learning opportunities.

I attended Des Moines Area Community College for my associates degree. After that I attended Upper Iowa University for my BA in Elementary Education with endorsements in Reading and Language Arts. In January 2017 I will be working towards my Masters in Urban Education and Reading Specialist from Drake University.
My fiance Joe and I have a beautiful, smart, and challenging (like every child can be) 5 year old daughter named Emersyn. She is the reason I got my degree and chased my dreams. When I'm not teaching I enjoy summers in my hammock, reading romance novels that don't make me think too hard, fire pit nights roasting smores, and playing games.
