Welcome to 3rd grade!  I am excited to begin another school year as a Hoover Hawk! I was born in Texas and spent my teenage years in Wisconsin. Upon graduating from the University of Iowa, I was so taken with Iowa City, I decided to stay, and I am still here today! I began my teaching career at the original Hoover site on Court Street in 1994.  In my time at Hoover, I have taught 3rd and 4th grades. My husband and I have one college-age son. I enjoy reading books of all types, working on crossword and Sodoku puzzles, walking our dog, and watching baseball games.

This year, I am looking forward to meeting new children and families. Every year I am amazed at how much our 3rd graders grow and become such independent, self-motivated learners.  Have a great year!!
