This will be my 20th year with DMPS, my 16th year at Greenwood teaching third grade. My first four years in the district, I taught kindergarten at Edmunds. My very first year of teaching was in a small farm town in the middle of California teaching in a kindergarten/first grade combination classroom.
I graduated with my bachelor’s degree from Iowa State University and my masters from Viterbo University. I have 3 children: Olivia, freshman at Valley Southwoods, and twin boys Devan and Damon, 4th grade at Clive Elementary. My husband Cory is a fitness trainer at Fitness World West. In my spare time, Cory and I are busy attending our children’s sporting, school, and church events, going to Iowa Hawkeye football games, and just hanging out together with our families.
