I have been employed by Pella Schools since August of 1999. I began as a Math Resource Teacher, then taught 3rd grade for a few years, and currently teach 4th grade. My husband, Mark, works for ABM Industries at Mercy One Medical Center in Newton and is the HS Girls’ Varsity Soccer coach. We have three children who have been through Pella schools. It is an excellent school district which offered many opportunities to our children. In my spare time, I love to read and try new recipes, but especially enjoy spending time with our kids. We love Pella and all it has to offer! Go Dutch!
