Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! Welcome to the new school year! I am excited about another school year at Sioux Central! My husband, Casey, and I live in Spencer where he is a funeral director for Warner Funeral Home. We had a busy Easter as we welcomed our first child, Finley! We have two dogs: a husky, Riley, and a goldendoodle, 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 and Varsity volleyball during my time with South O'Brien. I also coached high school softball for 6 years in Spencer.
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 and enjoy giving back to children in the community. I love playing slowpitch in the summer and volleyball at the YMCA in the winter.
