Math & Spanish
Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! I am thrilled to be teaching at South East Junior High! This is my 3rd year in the building. Several years ago, I taught 7th grade Spanish at South East, following a year teaching science and English in Huelva, Spain. Since then, I've taught at several elementary schools in Iowa City and in a middle school in Bozeman, Montana. I became a teacher because the relationships with students and the discovery about our world make me come alive. My desire is to help students find what makes them come alive and feel proud of the risks they take.
My classroom expectations: WONDER, ASK, TAKE ACTION, TAKE RISKS
I love to cuddle and play with my daughter, August Janet, and hike with my husband and two poodles, Rico and Mississippi. I also enjoy traveling and good jokes. :) I am an assistant coach for Girls Cross Country and the middle distance coach for the Girls Track and Field team, at City High.
