I grew up in Pella and then attended college at NWMSU for degrees in Elementary Ed. and Early Childhood. I later went on to get my masters degree in Elementary Education. I have taught in the Marshalltown, Carroll, and Pella School Districts. In my teaching career I have been able to be a Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade teacher. I was also a reading teacher for two years. I LOVE teaching and children. I am blessed to have the opportunity to help them love school and to be successful in reading, writing and math.
