I have an elementary education degree from Central College and a masters degree from Drake University. I have been teaching since the fall of 1989. I have taught a variety of grade levels starting with kindergarten. I have also taught third grade and reading plus. My favorite position by far though is 6th grade language arts. I love helping my students become stronger readers and writers.
I am married and have three children. I love spending time with my family and friends. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, traveling, swimming, and being outdoors.
