4th grade teacher
I grew up in Bettendorf, Iowa on the east side of the state in the good ol' QC! I have a younger brother Michael, who works in supply chain management for our uncle. We share a common love for Hawkeye football and social hour. My parents still live in the QC and are enjoying their later years of traveling, exercising, and spending time with family.
I graduated from The University of Iowa with a BA in Elementary Education with endorsements in reading and language arts, along with a Spanish minor. I got my first job in Norwalk at Lakewood Elementary as a 3rd grade teacher. The following year I moved up to 4th grade, which was my dream job- and have been there ever since. In my 4th year at Lakewood I have found myself adding more leadership roles each year. This year I currently serve as the PLC lead for 4th grade, member of the Tech committee, and Head Coach for Girls on the Run. I am so excited to start the cohort here in Waukee with Drake. I am pursuing my ELL endorsement this semester as well. Busy and happy!
