I am so fortunate to be a teacher: to see my 9 and 10 year olds learning, wondering,and investigating has been so rewarding. I been in this profession for quite sometime (but I’m not old:) My undergraduate degrees are in Music Education, Business Administration and Flute Performance. I began my professional career in Ankeny teaching instrumental than vocal music at the middle school level. I then realized I wanted to make a bigger impact. I began my Masters from Drake University in Education with a Mathematics emphasis. I then came to Des Moines (Weeks Middle School) and taught 7th and 8th grade Math. I then landed at Jefferson as a 5th grade teacher, then an Instructional Coach and now a 4th grade teacher (the best).
My family is my other love. My husband is a “retired” administrator. My daughter just graduated from Iowa State with a degree in Fashion Design. My son just graduated from Valley High School and will be attending the University of Iowa in the fall. Libby, my 4-legged daughter is a 7 year old lab.
