Welcome to my page! I am excited to join the Twain team this year as an academic support teacher. This is my fourth year with ICCSD. I previously worked as a supervising teacher for the Iowa City Home School Assistance Program. This will be tenth year teaching. Prior to coming to Iowa City, I worked in Denison and Tabor Iowa. I have taught 3rd, 5th and 6th grade. I also have an endorsement in Social Studies. When I'm not having a blast with my students, I am spending time with my family which include; husband Ted, daughters Lydia (3rd grade), Johanna (1st Grade), dog Milo and cat Maverick. We love the great outdoors and spend time hiking, canoeing, swimming and sledding. You name the season and we find something fun to do outside. I was born and raised in eastern Iowa. My family and I are excited to be moving to Iowa City this fall. My two girls will also join the Twain team this year. Some of my other hobbies and interest include photography, cross stitch, reading and writing. My most important passion is the growth and happiness of children. It is my mission to support my students mentally and emotionally as they are on their learning journey. What a fun, exciting and thrilling journey it can be!
