I have earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education from Iowa State University and a Reading Endorsement at Drake University. I have been teaching since 1989, specializing in Kindergarten.
I chose to be a teacher because I love working with all children. It is such a thrill to watch them grow academically and socially. Every child should have the opportunity to learn in an atmosphere where respect for one another is a top priority. I believe that success comes from hands-on learning opportunities and real world experiences. My goal is to encourage students to experiment, explore, and think critically while having fun too!
If you ever have a question, feel free to contact me at school by note, by telephone at 242-8403, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is my 14th year of teaching, my 11th at Cattell. I have the following degrees/endorsements:
BA from Briar Cliff University
Teaching Endorsement from Texas
Teaching Endorsement from Iowa -Upper Iowa University
Masters in Teaching and Reading Endorsement – Morningside College
Learning should be a fun experience. I want to build community in my classroom by working hard and playing hard, while striving to build relationships with my students. At the end of the day I want to send them off with a smile and hug.
My husband and I have 6 children. We have one grandchild , one grandturtle (that should be living with his dad not grandparents ) and two granddogs.
I can be reached by phone (242-8403) from 7:00-7:15. You may call after this and leave a message. I will return your call when I am not attending to students. Feel free to email me:
