The 2018-19 school year marks the beginning of my 21st year with Linn-Mar, and my 30th overall! My first year here, I taught kindergarten at Bowman Woods. After that, I continued on at Bowman Woods, teaching 5th grade. After 17 years, I transferred to Westfield Elementary, where I served as their Instructional Coach. Currently, I am teaching 5th grade at Wilkins Elementary.
As for my background in education, I received both my BA and MAE from the University of Northern Iowa in 1987 and 1991, respectively. I was fortunate to teach kindergarten, third, fourth, and fifth grades at Lowell Elementary in Waterloo for 9 years before joining the staff at Bowman Woods.
I truly enjoy working for Linn-Mar! There are amazing things happening here!
