I started my teaching career at Belle Plaine Elementary in the 2015-2016 school year. This is my eighth year teaching Kindergarten here in Belle Plaine.
I was a substitute for the Belle Plaine school district prior to teaching for them full time. I fulfilled postitions from pre-K to 12th grade. I enjoyed being a substitute for 4 years.
Here’s a little bit about me. I am married to my wonderful husband, Sam, and have lived here in Belle Plaine for 16 years. We love being a part of this small community and enjoyed raising our family here. I have 5 wonderful children (3 girls and 2 boys) and 7 grandchildren (the oldest is 14 and the youngest is 1 month old). We also enjoy having 4 fur babies in our family. We have our 2 dogs, Bessie and Annie, and 2 cats Gummy Worm and Buttercup (my son was hungry when he named them :D).
Things I love doing:
Sitting on the porch with a cup of coffee
Watching competitions on TV (the challenge, baking shows, etc)
Spending time with my husband and kids
Most of all, I LOVE being a grandma and spending time with my grandkids.
