Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! I am very excited to be part of the 5th grade teaching team at Desert Sage! The Univeristy of Iowa is where I earned my elementary teaching degree (Go Hawkeyes!). Upper Iowa University provided the education and experience I needed to earn my Reading Endorsement. I have taught 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th grades in public and private schools in Nebraska, Iowa, Florida and Arizona. My husband and I have two children: Tyler, who is currently working and studying for the MCAT, and Emily, who attends Colorado Christian University. We also have a furry 13-year old kid at home ~ Hershey, our chocolate lab! When I'm not teaching, I enjoy going for walks with my dog, playing tennis and reading.
