I first came to Nevada in 2001. I taught fifth grade science and math for several years. My current teaching assignments are fifth grade math and language arts. I feel very fortunate to teach with such knowledgeable, caring people. Prior to coming to Nevada, I taught fourth grade at West Hancock of Britt for 16 years, where I also learned from a lot of great people.
I grew up in Fort Dodge, IA where I graduated from Fort Dodge Senior High. My undergraduate degree is from Iowa State University in Elementary Education with a Reading Endorsement. I received my Master’s degree in Teaching, Learning and Leadership from Drake University in 1998.
I enjoy exercise in my spare time, and am a lover of animals. Time with friends and family is invaluable.
