Hi! I am SO excited to be part of the Cardinal First Grade team! I was born and raised in Ottumwa, IA and I am the youngest of three! When I graduated from high school I moved to Iowa City to attend the University of Iowa….GO HAWKS! I majored in Elementary Education and after I graduated in 2011 I moved back to Ottumwa. I taught 4th grade math and Kindergarten-3rd grade Talented and Gifted my first year teaching in Ottumwa. My true passion was having a classroom of my own so I could really get to know the students and their families and I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to come to Cardinal and teach 1st Grade!
I live in Ottumwa with my puppy, Tucker, and I enjoy taking him on long walks whenever I can! With any extra time I have I love to be with my family and friends usually cooking, watching movies or playing games! I am available for calls at ext. 4222 from Monday, Wednesday PE 10:30-11:00 T-Frid 12:30-1
