This is my fifth year as a teacher. I spent 3 years teaching in kindergarten and this year will be my second year in Preschool. I am happy to have begun my teaching journey at St Malachy. I am a graduate from Drake University. I received a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with specialization in reading, special education, and early childhood. When I am not at school I love spending time with my family (my husband and 4 children) and friends and my dog, Suzie! I also really enjoy reading, traveling, cheering for the Hawkeyes and spending my nights with my family.
