I started my education career here at Iowa in the Title One department. I enjoyed working with kids so much that I decided to go back to school to become a full time teacher. This is now my fourth year in 4th grade and seventh year all together. My greatest joy is seeing the happiness on my students' faces when they learn and discover something new. When I am not teaching, I am at the baseball field or bowling alley with my family, watching football, or reading. I have been married 13 years, have 3 boys, one granddaughter and 2 dogs.
