Welcome to my classroom page!

I encourage you to explore this page, the other pages on this site, and all included attachments to learn about me and the Clarke Community Preschool program.


This is my 11th year teaching preschool. I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a degree in Elementary and Early Childhood Education. In 2018, I added an early childhood special education endorsement from Northwestern College. It’s true that you never stop learning and growing!

I absolutely love teaching preschool! It is such a wonderful age. Every child is special and the classroom is a place where every child should feel safe, respected, and loved. As a preschool teacher I feel that it is my job to help them grow as individuals and develop a love of learning. It is amazing to watch the children grow throughout the year and every year is a new adventure!

My husband and I have lived in Osceola for 20 years. We have three children ages 21, 19 and 17. I also have a dog named Finn and 4 cats! In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family, antiquing and watching classic movies.
