Hi! I recently graduated from the University of Iowa in December. I am very familiar with South Union and the wonderful students that go here because I completed my student teaching here in 2nd grade, and then I was a long-term substitute for a first grade classroom. In my free time I enjoy running, spending time with family and friends, traveling, and going to the movies. I look forward to getting to know more of the families here at South Union and to watch our students grow into great learners!

I grew up here in Des Moines; I am a product of the Des Moines Public School system. After graduating from Drake University and briefly beginning my teaching career, I took time away to stay home with three wonderful children. After the youngest began school I returned to my passion of teaching, and have been with the Des Moines Public Schools for the last 17 years.
