I teach AP U.S. History, U.S. History, and World History. I attended Dallas Center-Grimes HS and then achieved my B.S. from Iowa State University. This is my fifth year teaching and fourth in the district. I previously taught in Minnesota and was lucky enough to be a student teacher here at CHS. Other educational experiences include working with Yad Vashem and Echoes and Reflections on spreading proper pedagogical practices for American educators teaching the Holocaust.
I coach 7th-8th grade football here at Carlisle and am also the head varsity softball coach at Knoxville High School. Outside of school I am a traveler and a Harry Potter nerd! Finally, I am also a proud owner of the Green Bay Packers.
