Hello! Welcome to the TAG program at Carlisle Schools! I have been teaching for thirteen years and this is my fourth year at Carlisle as a Wildcat. I am excited to be a part of this positive staff and to build relationships with our students. To learn about the many program opportunities that are available to our 8th - 12th grade students, please click on the link in the right column.
My undergraduate degrees are in Business Administration and Business Education from Truman State University in Kirksville, Missouri. I earned my Masters of Education in School Guidance and Counseling from Buena Vista University, and I earned my TAG certification through the University of Iowa.
My husband and I moved to West Des Moines recently, and we have four sons, a daughter-in-law, and a grand-dog. I grew up in Knoxville where my parents were both teachers, and my dad was a Hall of Fame football coach. I enjoy spending time with my adult children whenever I can. Outside of school time, I enjoy camping, reading, working out, and music (go band!). We have a really cute 6.5 pound Havanese dog named Christie.
I'm looking forward to working with you!
