Welcome to my class! I am so excited to be back in the classroom after 5 months of being home. Being a teacher, spreading joy, and being WITH people is my passion and I'm so lucky I get to be a part of your 2nd grader's journey. 2nd grade is going to be so much fun and you will be an important part of our team! In our classroom we will work hard to accomplish our goals and we will celebrate our achievements. Most importantly of all, we will have fun together...even in the midst of these uncertain historic times!
Here’s a little about me! The 2020-2021 school year is my 18th year of teaching. I grew up on an acreage near Steamboat Rock, a small town about an hour and a half north of Des Moines. I received my undergraduate degree from Iowa State University…GO STATE! I also have a master’s degree from Viterbo University. My husband Brett and I have three children, a son named Jakson, who is in 6th grade, a daughter Lyv, who is in 4th grade, and our littlest lady named Hadley, who is in 1st grade. I love being outdoors, being at the beach, visiting our cabin, going to football games, visiting the state fair, traveling, running, kickboxing, listening to music, reading, and being with my family and friends.
