Why Whitewater?

This is my 12th year teaching in the Whitewater Unified School District. My first two years I was the Title 1 Reading and Math teacher at Lincoln and then spent a year at Lakeview teaching First Grade. I returned to Lincoln eight years ago to become kindergarten and first grade teacher. The Lincoln staff is an incredible group of people who go above and beyond each and every day to help all students succeed! I look forward to coming to school each and every day and consider it an honor to be part of such a dedicated and caring staff!

In 1996 I graduated from Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa with a degree in Elementary Education. In 2004 I earned my Master's of Science degree in Elementary Education from Walden University. I have also completed my Early Childhood Licensure through Viterbo University.

When I'm not at school I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, listening to podcasts, lifting weights, running, spinning, watching Iowa Hawkeye football and shopping.
