I graduated from Luther College in 1994 with a B.A. in Elementary Education with a reading and early childhood endorsement. I received my Masters from Drake University in 2005. I have been a preschool, K/1 Multi-age, first grade, and an in-class teacher at Moulton since 2001. Before teaching at Moulton I was a preschool teacher for the Des Moines Schools and was also a tutor. I love how excited kids are when they learn something new.

I also enjoy traveling and golfing.
