I am married and have three boys. They keep me very busy. All of my boys play soccer, so I spend most evenings at a soccer field. I graduated from Iowa Wesleyan College with a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. I have a Middle School Endorsement and Special Education Endorsement. I earned my Master's Degree at Olivet Nazarene University in School Improvement and Leadership. I am beginning my 14th year in the school district. I am currently a 4th grade teacher, but I have also taugh 2nd and 5th grade here in Lemont.
