About Me... 

Hometown: Omaha, NE/Council Bluffs, IA

EducationI attended Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville, MO , where I majored in Elementary Education, minored in Early Childhood Education, and received an endorsement in Reading. At the end of my studies at NWMSU, I completed a semester of student teaching in the Bellevue Public School District in Bellevue, NE. During this time, I had the opportunity to teach 6th-grade students and kindergarten students. I absolutely loved working with children on both ends of the elementary spectrum.  In December of 2012, I completed my student teaching experiences and graduated with my BSED in Elementary Education. 

In August of 2013, I began my career in education teaching 1st Grade in Glenwood, IA. I taught there for three years before moving to Austin Texas in the summer of 2016. I am so excited to begin my 5th year in education, and 2nd year in DSISD teaching 3rd grade! I cannot wait to get to know each student and to witness the growth they will make this year! 


Philosophy...

I believe that each child is unique, and that their individuality is something to be celebrated. Every child needs an environment which is stimulating, safe, and secure in order to ensure growth and maturity. As an educator, I want to help students meet their fullest potential, as well as, develop a life-long love of learning.
