Biography

I have been teaching Head Start in an integrated classroom with Mrs. Herbert since 1991 when I graduated from Iowa State with my B.S. in teaching Prekindergarten and Kindergarten children. I love my job and I'm looking forward to a great year of learning with your preschooler! When I am not in school, I love spending time with my family. I enjoy traveling, spending time in nature, reading, shopping, cooking, tap dancing, riding my bike, swimming, meditating, doing yoga, and various art projects. I live with my mom and my two cats Lilly and Dezi.
