I am very excited to be your child's teacher this year. I grew up in Lomax and graduated from Dallas City High School. I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from Iowa Wesleyan College. In July of 2014, I graduated with a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from American College of Education. I began my career teaching 3rd grade in Olathe, Kansas for three years. Since I have been at Dallas City I have taught K-1 for 4 years, 2-3 for 1 year and 2nd grade for the last 11 years.
I have been married to my husband Dean for 23 years. We have four children: Zoey-19, Cale-17-(passed away from cancer on 5/13/16), Marah-13, and Emma 11. In my spare time I love to read, shop, and spend time with family and friends.
This year I will be using the 7 Habits in my classroom to teach leadership. Your child will learn the 7 Habits of Happy Kids and use them constantly in their everyday life. Your child will learn that "Leadership is doing what is right......even when no one is watching!!" They will have several opportunities to serve in leadership roles throughout the school year.
I am looking forward to a great year! Please do not hesitate to contact me by email or at school 852-3201 extension 1019.
