I began my teaching career at Pella Christian Grade School teaching K-5 General Music, 6-8 Choir, beginning band lessons, worship team leader, and private lesson instructor. In 2008 I began my service with Des Moines Public School at Harding Middle School as the 6-8 Vocal Music and Show Choir Instructor. In 2010 I accepted an administrative position within Harding Middle School as a School Improvement Leader. I am thrilled to continue to serve the students, families and north side community as the Principal of Cattell.
My passion lies with supporting students, families, and staff in their efforts to grow in knowledge and skills. I will strive to help each individual find success within Cattell Elementary.
