My husband and I have been living in Pella since 2001. We were both raised in Poland, and we speak Polish at home. Before we relocated to Iowa we lived in Pennsylvania, New York, Illinois, and Virginia. We have one son who is pursuing a career in journalism. After completing my educational endorsements at William Penn University I began teaching English Language Learners in Pella in 2009. I enjoy traveling, reading mystery books, gardening, and cooking traditional Polish food.
