I have taught at South Union Elementary for 17 years and currently teach 2nd grade. Other experiences include teaching kindergarten, fourth grade, and fifth grade. I live in the Des Moines area with my youngest daughter. My son attends Iowa State University and my oldest daughter attend UNI.
Welcome to 4th Grade! I am excited to start my 20th year in teaching with the Des Moines Public Schools. I celebrated 25 years of marriage with my husband Allan. We have three children Megan, Austin and Mason. I have taught Spanish in 6th – 8th grade at Harding and Brody. I also have taught in 1st grade, 5th grade and now have been in 4th grade for four years. I graduated with two majors for my Bachelor of Arts degree from Simpson College in Elementary Education and Spanish. I have endorsements in Early Childhood, Reading and K-12 Spanish. I also hold a Masters of Education degree. I love to travel, go camping, sing, read, swim, and go for early morning walks.
