Reading Recovery, 1st Grade

Professional and Educational Background

I received my elementary teaching degree from Northwestern College and a Reading Endorsement from Sioux Falls College. I also have a Driver's Education Certification and am a certified Reading Recovery teacher.

I teach Reading Recovery to 1st graders, and Title I Reading to 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders at Hospers Elementary. In the summer, I am also a Driver's Educations instructor and teach the Summer Reading Program.

I am married to Jed and have two grown sons. Peter is married to Megan and they live in Orange City. They have three daughters (Cadence, Nevaeh, and Tanith) and one son (Blaize). Peter teaches Title I Reading for MOC-FV and Megan works at Revival Animal Health.

Our other son Ben is married to Lindsey and lives in Alton. They have four sons (Hunter, Everett, Elijah, and Jacob). Ben works at Culligan and Lindsey is a nurse with Orange City Area Health System.

I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren, reading, and swimming.
