BIO: The upcoming 2018-2019 school year will be my 5th year teaching at Carlisle Middle School. I teach sixth and seventh grade Spanish, and I am the 7th Grade Collaborative Team Leader. I finished my Master's Degree through Drake University in May 2017. I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa in 2014. I am originally from Norwalk, Iowa, and I am very happy teaching so close to home! I am near most of my family, which is awesome. I'm recently engaged and planning a wedding for Summer 2019! In my spare time, I love to travel and be outside, especially kayaking. I love spending time with my friends, family, my fiancé Nick, and our husky, Opal.
