Welcome to first grade! I am very happy to have your child in my class this year. This will be my third year of teaching for Urbandale but my first year in 1stgrade.
I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa in 2015, with a bachelor degree in Early Childhood Education (with the inclusion of special education) and Elementary Education. I also received minors in Literacy and Coaching. I was born and raised in Amana, Iowa. My husband, Matthew, and I currently live in Waukee.
We have a great year ahead of us! I look forward to getting to know your children and to working directly with them in the classroom to facilitate their learning in reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. As your child’s teacher, it is my goal to not only teach, but to care for your child. I strive to make our classroom a safe and comfortable place for your children to learn.
I strongly believe that parent involvement is important to the students’ success in the classroom. I look forward to getting to know you and working with you as a team throughout the year. Please feel free to contact me at any time.
