This is my second year as a special education teacher at South Union Elementary. I grew up in Tama, Iowa and graduated from Simpson College. In my free time I enjoy dancing, cooking, watching movies, and playing trivia! My favorite part about my job is working with outstanding teachers and watching children succeed.
Hey! I’ve been working with people in the educational setting for most of my life as a volunteer or a teacher. My mother is an educator as well as my sister.I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. I love to educate and be educated not just in the classroom but the outdoors. Some of my hobbies include fishing, archery, shooting, hiking, biking, and water sports. I love the midwest’s four seasons. Each season gives me an opportunity for an outside adventure. Being a classroom teacher is ALWAYS an adventure!
I’ve been working with children of all ages in many different settings for the last 20 years. For the last 3 years I’ve enjoyed working in the self contained room here at South Union, I love my job and the people I work with! I also love spending time with my 3 beautiful children and adorable grandson.
