Biography

Hello second graders and your families!  This is my first year at Hubbell and my first year in second grade and I couldn’t be more thrilled!  Previously, I taught third grade at Park Avenue elementary in Des Moines and I’m excited to continue my IB journey.  I graduated from Iowa State University (GO state!) in 1997with a BS in Elementary Education and will finish up my master’s degree in curriculum and instruction with a specialization in English language learning from Buena Vista University in May.  I am excited to get to know each and every one of you as we start this second grade journey together!  Please feel free to contact me with any questions; I think the journey to being a lifelong learner starts with a great relationship between home and school.
