Hello, Welcome to my page.
I teach 7th grade Literature and 7th and 8th grade Secondary Reading. I am entering my twelfth year of teaching at MOC-Floyd Valley Middle School. I have 18 years teaching experience. I earned my bachelor's degree in English and Secondary Education from Teikyo Westmar University in LeMars, and my master's degree in School Guidance and Counseling from Buena Vista University in Storm Lake.
My husband Curt farms near Oyens, but we recently moved to town and let our son's family move to the family farm. We have three children. Chad, our oldest is married (wife Hilary) with three beautiful children (Avery, Adley, and Conner). Andrea, our oldest daughter, is also married. She and her husband Jeremy have two children, Jack and Amelia, aka Mia. Our youngest, Caitlyn is a sophomore at UNI, majoring in education.
I spend my free time biking and walking the trail in LeMars, gardening, and reading. I also enjoy baking and spoiling my grandchildren.
