I began my teaching career in Iowa as a special education para and substitute teacher. Then I taught preschool for 1 year. After that year, Steve and I moved to Missouri. I taught a K-2 multiage class in KCMO school district for a year in a science magnet building. I taught first grade in Cameron, MO for 3 years before starting to teach for the Kearney School District. My career in Kearney began as a Kindergarten teacher at Holt Elementary where I taught until it closed. I moved to Hawthorne Elementary the following year as a kindergarten teacher. I have spend 5 years in third grade, moved back to kindergarten last year, and am so excited to be back in third grade for this year! The best experience I had as a teacher was looping for 2 years in second and third grade 3 years ago. I am thrilled to be back in third grade and look forward to a great year!
My undergraduate degree is in Early Childhood Education from Iowa State University. I have a Masters' Degree in Education from Park University and a Masters' Degree in Reading from MidAmerica Nazarene University.
