I am originally from a small town called Worthington, Iowa (population: 400). I went to Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa for my undergrad degree. After college, I taught Special Education for two years at Central Middle School in Muscatine, Iowa. While teaching I worked on getting my Master's in Special Education through Morningside College in Souix City, Iowa. I am three credits away from finishing my program, which I'll be finishing this winter.  I just got married on May 28th of this year and moved to Sneads Ferry, NC with my husband and our puppy. I am excited to be a new teacher and JCMS and am looking forward to a great school year!
