I'm glad you stopped by!
This is my 14th year here in the Independence Community School District. I love it! I taught Junior Kindergarten/Early Childhood Special Education for 5 years, then just ECSE for 1 year before transferring to 3rd grade. I taught 3rd grade for 7 years and now I am teaching K-2 Special Education at East Elementary!
I have my Masters Degree in Quality Schools, which I received from Graceland University in 2008. I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa in 2001 with a BA Degree in Elementary/Early Childhood Education, with a Special Education minor in PK-3rd grade. I also have my Reading Endorsement.
I currently live in Waterloo and have lived in the Cedar Falls/Waterloo area for about 18 years! I did live in Independence for about 2 years before meeting my husband, Chris. We were married in 2008 and we have two children. Ava is 6 years old and Jake is 3!
