Hi! I am so happy that I get to be your 1st grade teacher this year! I love teaching at Howe. This is my 2nd year at Howe and 6th year of teaching. I live on the Southside of Des Moines, and I am a Lincoln alum. Go Rails! I graduated from the University of Iowa with degrees in English and Communication Studies. Then I graduated from Upper Iowa University with a degree in Elementary Education with endorsements in Reading and Language Arts. I received my Masters degree in Literacy and Reading Specialist endorsement from Drake University. I spend time outside of school with my husband and two daughters. I love to cook, garden, and run outside.
