This is my 18th year as a teacher. My family and I live in Marengo and are actively involved in Iowa Valley and support all Iowa Valley student activities. My classroom is a welcome learning environment.

I encourage students to be involved in learning in school, at home, and in the world around them.

Some websites that I encourage parents and students to explore and use are,, a+test (a spelling site), and These are free websites that are interesting for first graders and enhance the learning that we are involved in in the classroom.
