Biography

In the summer of 2012 I moved to the Des Moines area from St. Louis, Missouri where I also taught first grade. I have a Master's of Arts in Elementary Education from McKendree University and a bachelor's degree in Journalism & Media from Missouri State University.  I worked as a television news reporter/anchor and in public relations before becoming an elementary school teacher.  In the Fall of 2016 I became the MTSS Coordinator for the district.
