I attended Central College where I majored in Elementary Education with a focus on Early Childhood Education. After graduating from Central in 2003, I began teaching kindergarten here in the Pella School District. I love teaching kindergarten! One of my favorite things about my job is helping the development of my young students and seeing the progress they make from fall to spring. It is a joy watching their eyes light up when they learn something new.
My husband Jeff and I have two wonderful children. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, running, going for walks, and sometimes just sitting and enjoying the beauty of nature.
