My story begins in Cedar Rapids, Iowa where I was born and raised. I can still see myself at seven years old, begging my two older brothers to play school with me. Many years down the road I went off to Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa where I listened to the seven year old inside me, telling me to pursue a path in elementary education. In December of 2010 I graduated from Loras with a degree in elementary education and an endorsement in reading.
My passion for teaching, learning, and my love of children is what drives me to be the best I can be every single day. I am delighted to be a part of the Moulton team and I look forward to having a fantastic year!
I am very excited to be teaching 4th grade at Moulton! I have a degree in elementary education from Iowa State University with endorsements in Language Arts, Reading, and Social Studies. Before teaching at Moulton I taught in Minnesota and worked with after school programs in Des Moines. I am super excited to work with Moulton students and I am excited to learn along with them! In my free time I like to read, cook, and play with husband and dogs.
I grew up in the Des Moines area and I’m proud to be teaching for DMPS! I first graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a Sociology Degree and then realized my true passion was in teaching. While working and taking evening classes, I earned my Elementary Education Degree and later a Master’s Degree from Upper Iowa University. I previously taught 3rd grade at Capitol View elementary, and then in 2019 I started teaching at Moulton. Outside of school I love biking, hiking, and spending time with my family. I look forward to another great year at Moulton!
