I'm passionate about teaching and student success, and I'm inspired by organizations doing great work. Put them together and you've made my day. You've made my life, actually. I believe Des Moines Public Schools is one of those organizations.
In January, 2014, I received my second bachelors degree and became a teacher at Findley Elementary. Since then, I've spent my days helping students believe in themselves and their life missions.
