I grew up in Southeastern Minnesota and went to college in Iowa. I taught in Iowa for four years and then moved to Wyoming where I lived and taught for eight years. Now I have returned to Iowa where I live with my husband and our three children. I am excited to be back teaching in Iowa. In my spare time, I enjoy reading a variety of books and spending time with my family.
I have been teaching high school mathematics for 14 years. In that time I have taught almost every possible high school math course from Basic Algebra to Calculus. I have my Master's Degree and National Board Certification. I have been a state finalist for the Presidential Award for Mathematics and Science teaching twice as well as Teacher of the Year for my district.
