This is my seventh year teaching at JFK. I have family roots at both JFK and OLV. I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with my BA in Elementary Education and endorsements in Reading (K-8), Language Arts (K-8), and Social Studies (K-8). I completed my TAG endorsement (K-12) in the fall of 2016. During the 2012-2013 school year, I taught at Littlefield Middle School in Lumberton, North Carolina. When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my twin nephews, and friends, and participating in different ministries at OLV.
