Biographical Information

I have been privileged to be a part of the Missouri Valley Elementary staff for the past fourteen years.  I absolutely LOVE teaching First Grade!  Teaching is a great passion of mine - one that I love sharing with others.  I hope to pass on my love and passion for learning to my students!

I live on a farm outside of Logan, IA with my husband, Mike and our kids, Eli and Ella.  Outside of school, I enjoy reading, walking, gardening, and spending time with family and friends.
