About Me

  • School Stuff- I LOVE teaching and learning new things!  I graduated from the University of Iowa with a B.A. in Elementary Education. GO HAWKS!  I am excited to be teaching 5th grade!
  • My Family- I am an Alumni of AHST, which was called A-S-T when I graduated.  I married my high school sweetheart and we have three wonderful children – James, Kendal, and CJ.  We also have two box turtles, Scratch and Franklin, and a parakeet named Max. 
  • For Fun- I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, basketball, watching my children in their various activities, coaching soccer, reading, baking (NOT cooking), gardening, going to the beach, ”surfing” the Internet for cool teaching ideas, hanging out with my friends, eating out and shopping!  I also love traveling.
