The 2016-17 school year starts my 17th year teaching and I am as excited as ever! I am from Arizona, but have fallen in love with Iowa seasons. I have a Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education and have a Reading Endorsement. I am married with two kids. I love to read, kayak and hang out with my family. This is my second year teaching at McKinley Elementary and I am thrilled to be back with such amazing staff, students and families.
