BA in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education

I am very thankful to join the St. Patrick Staff as the 2018-2019 school year begins! I am excited to be teaching 1st and 2nd grade and coaching 5th and 6th grade volleyball and basketball.
Born and raised in the small farming community of Early, Iowa, my memories include working on our family farm and growing up with my parents and two sisters. After graduating from Storm Lake St. Mary's High School in 2014,  I continued my education at the University of Northern Iowa. At UNI, my favorite activities were helping with Relay for Life, playing intramural sports, and studying abroad for two weeks in France. I also worked in the before and after school program at St. Patrick School! I graduated from UNI in the spring of 2018 with a double major in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education. 
I was blessed to land a job right here in Cedar Falls at the school I fell in love with when I came to college. The emphasis St. Patrick School puts on faith, leadership, and education is what I appreciate and admire about this school. I am thankful I can do what I love in a place where everyone is so supportive and where I can continue living and teaching my faith every day.
