‚ÄčWelcome!  I am beginning my first year teaching Spanish at SHHS.  I was born in Kirksville, Missouri and grew up in Iowa City, Iowa, where I graduated from Iowa City High School in 1991.  I graduated from Iowa State University in Ames with a B.A. in Spanish Education (1995) and an M.S. (1999) in Foreign Language Curriculum and Instruction.  I have taught all levels of Spanish, from preschool through college. I taught in the Des Moines area for 14 years at both public and parochial schools.  My husband, Tim, and I have five children:  Landon, a freshman at SHHS, Ellie a seventh grader at SHHS, Carson, Drew and Avery.  In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, running, watching and participating in sports, and reading.
