6 Gold Earth and Space Science
I graduated in 2005 from the University of Northern Iowa with degrees in Elementary Education and Middle Level Education. I also have endorsements in Reading (K-8) and Mathematics (K-8) and graduated in 2015 with a master's degree in Teaching Effectiveness and Professional Development from Drake University. I previously taught fifth and sixth grade for the West Marshall School District in State Center, Iowa. I joined the staff at Parkview Middle School in 2012.
I have enjoyed teaching science in Ankeny. The students are so inquisitive and every class is just a little different! It's fun to see the connections that students make between the different science concepts that are being learning throughout the year. I also love our discussions in class connecting how what we are learning about relates to our every day lives.
My husband and I live in Ankeny. We have a son, Logan, and a daughter, Mila, who both attend elementary school in Ankeny. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, reading, and chasing after my kids and dog.
