Hi! I grew up in Manson and have been teaching for 21 years. I attended college at Grand View University and Buena Vista University. I taught in Rockwell City for a year and a half and then came to MNW in 1997. I taught various elementary grades and in the high school before taking my current position as one of the preschool teachers. I have taught preschool since 2007. My favorite things in life are spending time with my family and pets and teaching preschool.
