I began teaching 2nd grade in 2004. I taught at Willard Elementary until 2011 and have been at Findley ever since. I graduated from Upper Iowa University and received my Masters in Education Degree from Viterbo University. I have three wonderful children – Keenan, Brennan and Zoey. We keep busy playing lots of sports, running races and traveling.
I am a 5th grade teacher at Findley Elementary. I have taught at Findley since 2006 and love the extended family that the community has provided. I attended Grandview College and received a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and an endorsement in Reading. In 2017 I earned my master’s degree in Leadership and Learning from Buena Vista University. I love swimming, reading and being outdoors. I love spending time with family which includes my husband Abraham, my daughter Chloe and son Isaac.
I have been teaching for 19 years, 18 of those years have been at Findley. I graduated from Newton High School, and continued my education at DMACC, Iowa State University, and Viterbo University. I have 3 children and 2 cats. I spent 10 years in the United States Marines traveling the world but never forgot my first love – School.
