Welcome to first grade! I am so excited to be your child’s teacher. This is my fifth year teaching. I graduated from Central College with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education with a reading endorsement. I just started work to get my masters through Morningside College. I LOVE the Iowa Hawkeyes, the Chicago Bears, playing soccer, and being with family and friends.
We are going to have a fun, exciting, and learning filled year! My hope is that every student in my classroom falls in love with learning and that I inspire them to be their best each and everyday.
