I graduated from Iowa State University with a BS degree in Child Development and Elementary Education. I completed my Master's Degree in Elementary Education from Western Illinois University in 2001. I also received my National Board Certification in 2001.
I have 27 years teaching experience.
I started my career teaching third grade at Grant School. After staying home for thirteen years to raise my family, I returned to full time teaching as a kindergarten teacher at McKinley. This is my twenty-second year of teaching second grade at Grant.
I have three children and four grandchildren. My daughter resides in Ft. Collins, Colorado and my two sons live in Albuquerque, New Mexico so I’m “headed west” at every opportunity. When I am not busy teaching, I enjoy golf, hiking (especially in the mountains), snow skiing, playing bridge, and reading.
