This year I am teaching kindergarten, though I have also taught first and second grade students here at St. Patrick School. Before coming here, I taught third grade for three years at Immaculate Conception School in Charles City, my hometown.
I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa where I majored in Elementary Education and received a reading endorsement. In 2010 I completed my master's degree in education from Viterbo University and completed my early childhood endorsement.
I have really enjoyed experiencing the different grades and seeing how the students progress as they learn. I love the enthusiasm kindergarten students have for learning and how everyday is different. In June my husband Dean and I welcomed our first child Dylan into our family.
