I will be starting my 14th year at Willard. I really love teaching here. I strive to serve the families and students of this community. Kindergartners can do so much and I love helping them with high expectations and a loving classroom.

I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with a Literacy Endorsement from the University of Northern Iowa. This will be my 6th year teaching at Willard and in that time I have taught 4/5 Reading and Math, K/1 Reading and Math, and Kindergarten! Willard is an amazing place for students to grow and I am very fortunate to be a part of the amazing staff. Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my husband and two sons. We enjoy spending time with our families, watching the Royals, and going on walks as a family
I earned my Early Childhood Education/Early Childhood Special Education degree from Iowa State University. After graduating, I taught the general education and special education preschool students in Webster City, IA. This is my third year teaching at Willard Elementary and I am very excited to continue my journey with Des Moines Public Schools! When I am not at school I like to exercise, take my dog to the park, read, and knit.
