Welcome to my page. This year is my 34th year of teaching and I am so excited. I have been teaching at Karen Acres for 25 years and I love it. I love reading so being a reading teacher is the best job for me. I went to college at the University of Iowa and got my teaching degree there. Then I went to Iowa State for my master’s degree. I cheer for the Hawks and the Cyclones (but when they play each other I cheer for the Hawks.)
My family is very important to me. I am married and I have two daughters. As a family we enjoy doing things together like going to the farmer’s market in downtown Des Moines. Both of my daughters are in school. Caroline is a medical student at Vanderbilt Medical School and Grace is a junior at the University of Iowa. I am a proud mom!! I love to hang out by my pool and read books. I also enjoy spending time with my friends. Have a great year!! Go Jay Hawks!!
