I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Drake University 1977. As a life long learner I found I enjoyed teaching my own two boys and returned to further my education. I received my Bachelor of Arts as a K-6 Elementary Classroom Teacher in 1997. In 2009 I received my Masters of Arts in Teaching as a Professional Educator from Morningside College. Through the years I added endorsements in PK-K, Early Childhood, K-8 Reading, K-8 Social Studies and K-12 English as a Second Language.
This will be my 15th year at North Iowa and my 11th year as a Preschool teacher. I am excited to create a quality preschool program that makes children ready for school. School readiness means children possess the skills, knowledge, and attitude necessary for success in school and for later learning in life. For parents and families, school readiness means that their children are engaged in long term, lifelong success. I recognize that parents are their child's primary teacher and advocate. I look forward to working with students and their families to make learning fun and rewarding. Please feel free to visit our classroom anytime.
