I began my teaching career teaching high school English and Spanish in Minnesota in 2004 after graduating from Dordt College with a B.A in secondary education and majors in both English and Spanish. I took a middle school language arts position with Oskaloosa Christian School after my family moved back to our home state. I began my role as Academic Coach in Pella in the fall of 2016. I love being able to connect with students outside of the “normal” teacher role!
My husband and I and our four boys thoroughly enjoy living in Pella. We love spending lots of time outdoors and traveling back to Minnesota to visit our old home.
