My Professional Journey...

This is my fourth year serving as shared Curriculum Director for North Fayette Valley Schools.  This is my 16th year in Iowa's education system.  I have taught K-3 Bilingual Literacy, K-12 ESL and High School Spanish.  I also spent 3 years working with Keystone AEA as a School Improvement Facilitator in the areas of Equity and ELL.  My most recent adventure was serving 5 years as an elementary principal for Valley.  I LOVE my position as Curriculum Director because I get to focus on student learning, teacher instruction and professional development.  I have the advantage of working with many top-notch teachers, administrators and staff at NFV who spend countless hours providing the best learning opportunities for our students.  

I have a BA in Education with a Major in Spanish and an ESL Endorsement from University of Iowa. (Go Hawks!)   I received my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from Viterbo University.  My husband, Jason, and I live with our 4 wonderful children in Clermont.
