Welcome to Kindergarten! I earned my degree in elementary education from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1992, and my master’s degree from Viterbo University in 2006. I believe that learning is a lifelong, active, and exciting journey. I am so fortunate to be able to introduce your child to the wonderful world of Hubbell!
Hello! Welcome to the exciting time of Kindergarten! This is an amazing time in your child’s life, and I can’t wait to be a part of it! My journey in education has been amazing. I was born and raised in Columbus, Nebraska. After graduating from high school, I went on to attend college at Midland University in Fremont, Nebraska, where I studied and played collegiate soccer. After three and a half years, I graduated from Midland in 2016 with a degree in Elementary Education and endorsements in Early Childhood and Coaching. My husband and I moved to Norwalk, Iowa in the fall of 2016 after we were married and have loved every second of it. I am excited to continue my teaching career in Iowa and get to know your littles!
Welcome to kindergarten! Kindergarten is such an amazing time of growth – both academically and socially. It is amazing to begin this school journey with our young learners!
Since graduating from the University of Northern Iowa in 2003, I have spent my teaching years here at Hubbell in a variety of roles. During my first five years here, I taught special education and enjoyed being able to co-teach with many different teachers. I then moved into a general education classroom and taught second grade for three years. I loved teaching second graders—their sense of humor and wonderful questions kept me on my toes! During this time I received my masters from the University of Illinois in Global Studies in Education. I also spent five years working with Hubbell’s amazing staff as the IB coordinator. I learned a ton from our teachers, but was very excited to return to the classroom. Now, I get to spend my days with our youngest learners and love every minute of it!
When I am not at school, you can usually find me at some type of sporting events. Between my 3 children, they are on teams for basketball, wrestling, football, softball, baseball, and volleyball!
