I have been with the Des Moines Public Schools since 1994, I have taught pre-k through 3rd grade. I came to Windsor in 2000. I am proud to say I spent 12 years as a student in Des Moines Public Schools and am a Roosevelt alum! Go Riders! I graduated from Grand View University with a degree in elementary education and later earned my early childhood endorsement. In my free time I like spending time with family and friends, reading, knitting and watching the Chiefs play. I love that I get the opportunity every day to watch our students learn and grow. I love our Windsor community!
Hello! This will be my 6th year of teaching at Windsor. I absolutely love teaching and building relationships with students, and I’m so excited for another school year. I taught 5th grade for two years, and this will be my fourth year teaching 3rd grade. I graduated from Iowa State University in December of 2017, and I received my master’s degree from Drake University in December of 2022. I’m originally from Harlan, IA where I grew up on my family’s dairy farm alongside my twin sister, Emily, and my younger brother, Josh. In my free time, I enjoy reading, playing guitar and piano, being active, and spending time with my friends and family.
