Training:
Cognitively Guided Instruction (CGI), levels 1 & 2

Teaching Experience:
In 2005, I participated in Camp Adventure through the University of Northern Iowa. This program sent me to Tokyo Japan, to be a volunteer preschool teacher on Yokota Air Force Base. After my time in Japan, I moved to Council Bluffs, Iowa, and became a Kindergarten/1st grade looping teacher. I spent 8 years in the Lewis Central School District before moving to the Des Moines area. This is my second year at Stowe and I am very excited to be here!

My hopes and dreams for students this year is for them to embrace their differences and celebrate diversity, so that we can build a classroom community that is a place where all ideas are heard and valued. I want my students to know that one person CAN make a difference in this ever changing global society.

Teaching Experience:
I have been with DMPS for 16 years. (15 years at Stowe)
My first year I taught a 1st/2nd grade combination class. Then I taught 1st grade for 1 year. 2nd grade for 1 year and the other 13 years teaching Kindergarten.


My hope and dreams for students this year is for them to become risk-takers, to try things that are new for them. I want them to become independent learners who want to learn more about themselves and the world around them. I want them to be caring individuals and learn why it’s important that we help each other and the world we live in. I want them to enjoy their school experience and share that enjoyment and learning experience with their families.
