Welcome to Kindergarten! I have taught grades kindergarten through third grade. Kindergarten is my favorite grade! The growth students make socially and academically is incredible – I am fortunate to be a part of your child’s life during this time.
I received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from the University of Northern Iowa and my master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Graceland University.
I am a firm believer that our kindergarten class is a family! We will encourage, love, and support each other to be the best we can be!

It’s another great year in kindergarten! I have taught kindergarten at Park Avenue for several years and before that was a Montessori pre-k/kindergarten teacher. I am originally from Des Moines and have lived here most of my life. I have a bachelor’s degree in history from the University of Iowa and a master’s degree in elementary education with a reading endorsement from Drake. I also have my Montessori Early Childhood credential. I love reading, hanging out with my cats, and spending time with family and friends. Helping children to learn how to read is one of my favorite things to do and I am looking forward to sharing lots of books with my kindergarten friends this year!
