I came directly to East Buchanan from Iowa Wesleyan College in Mt. Pleasant where I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education in 1987! I have taught 3rd, 4th, and 6th grades at EB along with coaching the High School Speech Team for 25 years and directed plays for 12 years. I taught in the elementary for 21 years before coming to the Library. This is my 8th year in the LMC. During my first three years in the LMC I worked on completing my Masters Degree in Library Science and Information Technologies. I took all of my classes Online through Mansfield University in Mansfield, Pennsylvania.
My husband and I live in Winthrop with our very spoiled dog, Tucker, and cat Willie Mae. South Dakota and Colorado are our favorite destinations. I prefer historical fiction but truly enjoy all genres of literature! I am a HUGE St. Louis Cardinals fan as well as an Iowa Hawkeyes fan. Bob and I enjoy watching many different sports.
Our oldest daughter, Kara, was married in August of 2015 and lives in North Liberty. She works with special needs high school students in the Mid Prairie school district as well as coaching. She is the assistant girls basketball coach and the head softball coach. She and her husband, Adam, have a sassy French Bulldog named Lola!. Adam is a small business owner and has two Orange Leaf (frozen yogurt) franchises that he manages. Shelbie lives in Ankeny and works at Lifetime Fitness in Urbandale as a personal fitness trainer. She and her fiance, Kevin, have two crazy dogs - a Siberian Husky named Bo and a Pit-Boxer mix (rescue dog) named Mya. Kevin is a police officer in Urbandale. They are planning a September, 2017, wedding!
