Elementary Education Instructional Strategist LD/BD K-12
Hello and welcome to my website! Although this is my first year in Beulah, this will be my 8th year in teaching. I was born and raised in Iowa where I earned a degree in Elementary Education and Instruction Strategist LD/BD K-12. I began my teaching career in 2005 as a 1st grade teacher in Charleston, South Carolina. When we moved back to Iowa, I taught Special Education for 3 years for the Davenport School District. When we first moved to Beulah in 2010 I owned and operated an in-home daycare until 2013 when I taught 2nd and 3rd grade in Hazen, ND for 3 years.
My family means everything to me. My husband, Kris, is a shift operator at the Garrison Dam and we've been married for 11 years. Our almost 10 year old daughter, Ava, will be a 4th grader this year and our "baby" Gunnar is a kindergartener! Life is just flying by but we're making great memories camping, kayaking, and cooking together. I'm also a coach at Roughrider CrossFit Kids and spend many nights curled up with a great book.
