I have been with the Pella School District since 2012. I started as an associate for two years, then taught Kindergarten, and now Second Grade. I grew up in Pella with a love for learning and always knew I wanted to be a teacher. I attended Dordt College and got my BA in Elementary Education with endorsements in Early Childhood and Reading. I also attended Viterbo University where I received my Masters in Education.
My husband, Kegan, works for the City of Pella and also grew up in Pella. We have a son, Beckett, who was born in March 2016. We enjoy spending time with friends and family, being outdoors, and going for walks and bike rides. We feel very blessed to call the community of Pella our home.
