I have a BA in Elementary Education from the University of Northern Iowa. In addition, I have over 60 hours of graduate credit in such subjects as reading comprehension, literacy, and fundamentals of elementary math.

I have 18 years of teaching experience with both Middle School and Elementary students. My main area of focus is working with students who have difficulty in math. I have a hands on approach and like to use manipulatives and concrete examples as a part of my instruction. In my 18 years of experience most of the students I have worked with are very defeated and discouraged about math and their ability to learn it. Therefore, I spend a significant amount of time working on their confidence and encouraging them to realize that they can learn and do well in math. My motto is "math is your friend". Connecting math to everyday life is an important part of helping students realize that math is an integral part of everyone's life. In addition to my training in the area of math, I also have significant training and have work with students in the area of behavior, reading, and writing.

I have a minor in coaching and have coached middle school and high school level sports in the area of volleyball, softball and basketball. I played division I volleyball and have coached a varsity level team to the state finals. I am an avid sports enthusiast and have played/coached softball and basketball all of my adult life. I believe in a positive approach and stress doing the fundamentals correctly.
