Teaching is my happy place! I am very grateful that I found my calling early in life. I have twenty years of experience working with children, fourteen of those years as a certified licensed teacher in Iowa. I have a BA in Elementary Education & Special Education from the University of Northern Iowa. I fell in love with preschool, and later went back for a Pre-K Endorsement from Morningside Academy. Born and raised in Iowa, I obtained a California preschool permit. This will be my seventh-year teaching in California, as I stayed home with our little ones during the transition here. I am a mom of three boys, one who currently attends OSLS. We spend many weekends participating in baseball games and tournaments. My hobbies include creative activities, walking & family nights at home. I am blessed to be a part of Our Saviors Lutheran School community and look forward to an amazing year ahead!
