Bio

I live on a farm in Eastern Iowa with my husband and my kids: Cameron, Grace, and Gabby. We live about 7 miles from the Mississippi. My parents have a cabin and their home on the river so we spend a lot of time there during the summer and even the winter months. I have three sisters with whom I am very close with and we all live within 20 minutes of each other. I have one sister that is still in college. I absolutely love where I live. It is so beautiful.

Favorite Books

Funny Teaching Tale

I teach in a lower income school district so sometimes the kids tell me about DHS coming to their house and the cops. Funny but sad they aren't afraid to say it out loud in front of the whole class.

Teaching Passion
