Degrees and Certifications:
Hello friends! I am so excited to be one of the 6th Grade Language Arts teachers here at Altadeña Middle School. More importantly, I am thrilled to be your teacher! It’s going to be a fun year filled with loads of learning and new adventures. I am eager to learn all about each one of you, but first I want to share with you a few things about me.
I was born and raised in Mason City, Iowa, where the main hub of my family still resides. After I graduated from high school, I went to North Iowa Area Community College (NIACC), and then attended Buena Vista University, where I received my Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Elementary Education. I made the move out here to Arizona in February of 2011, and have loved it ever since!
I like to spend my free time with my family who live out here. My uncle is Mr. Smith, (the PE teacher here at Altadena), and my Aunt Meredy is a 6th grade Language Arts teacher over at Akimel. Addison and Ainsley are my two super fab cousins, whom I adore! I also enjoy spending time with friends, hiking, shopping, reading, decorating, and going to sporting events.
I am super excited for the year to begin and for all of you to be a part of our class crew. I look forward to finally meeting you. Hope you are ready for this new chapter in your life-it's going to be one spectacular year!
