I am excited to be working at Taylor! I look forward to meeting all the students and their families. This will be my 15th year working for Des Moines Public Schools. I taught kindergarten for 6 years on the south side, then moved to the Early Childhood department and have taught in integrated preschool classrooms at Madison, Carver and King, as the Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) teacher. I received my undergraduate and graduate degree in education from Drake University.
Hi, welcome to Taylor! I am thrilled to have the pleasure to learn and work with preschoolers. I have my Early Childhood Development Associate credential. I have been working in Early Childhood since 2007 with Miss Hill, Mrs. Herbert, and Mrs. Parsons. I have a son who I enjoy playing board games with, doing karaoke, and watching him grow. I like spending time with my family and friends. I am ready to learn, have fun, and be creative.
I am happy to be in your child’s room this year! I have my Associates Degree in general studies and my Early Childhood Development Associate Credential. I have been working with Miss Hill, Mrs. Herbert and Ms. Lee for many years and look forward to another great year! I have been married for many years and have three great boys and four grandchildren. I enjoy walking my dogs and riding my bike. I can’t wait to share my love of reading with your children!
