Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! Welcome to the new school year! I am excited to continue my career here at Sioux Central! My husband and I were recently married this past April and currently live in Spencer where he is a funeral director for Warner Funeral Home. We have two dogs, a husky named Riley, and a goldendoodle puppy named Barney. I grew up in Spencer and graduated in 2008. While in high school I was very active in athletics. I lettered all 4 years in all 4 sports that I participated in (softball, basketball, tennis, and volleyball). I went to college at Morningside College in Sioux City where I played softball and double majored in Elementary Education and Psychology.
After college I began my teaching career with South O'Brien Elementary where I also taught 4th grade. I coached JV volleyball for my first 3 years before taking over as the head volleyball coach for my final 2 years there.
Outside of the classroom my husband and I love watching Hawkeye athletics (even during the tough years!) and seeing friends and family. We are both very involved with the Spencer Jaycees (my husband is the president this year) and enjoy giving back to our community's youth. I love playing slowpitch in the summer and volleyball at the YMCA in the winter.
