I have taught for 30 years with 29 of them in the Des Moines School District. I started in special education at Callanan then moved to 1st grade at Park Avenue next to 1st /2nd grade at Wallace and finally to Phillips. I have been at Phillips for 11 years.
This will be my 6th year teaching 3rd grade at Phillips. I attended Upper Iowa University and Iowa State University. Go Cyclones! The best parts of my job are getting to know new students each year and working with amazing people. I live in Des Moines with my husband Michael and my son Cole. When I’m not at work I enjoy reading, camping, and spending time with family and friends.
