I graduated from Hope College with a degree in special education in 2009. After graduation, my husband and I moved to central Illinois where I was special education teacher for 4th and 5th graders from 2009 – 2016. My husband is a native of Pella and we made the decision to move back to Pella in the summer of 2016. I am looking forward to being a part of such a great school district and helping all students that I work with strive to reach their maximum potential.
Outside of school I enjoy reading, traveling, and spending time with my husband and our daughter. We love to spend time outside and some of our favorite outdoor activities including gardening, swimming, running and playing with our dog.
