This is my second year teaching at Groves Elementary but my 7th year teaching, overall. I have had the pleasure of teaching 5th grade in Iowa, 2nd grade in Carrollton Farmers Branch, Texas, 1st grade in Garland ISD, and now Kindergarten at Groves.
I was born and raised in the small town of Des Moines, Iowa. I went to the University of Iowa where I received my Bachelor's degree and teaching certification. I was able to teach one year in Iowa before making the leap to move to Texas with my (then) boyfriend, Anthony.
After 8 years together, I am excited to say that, even in the crazy 2020 year, we were able to have the wedding of our dreams this past June. We are so happy here in Texas and look forward to many more years here!
Since being here, I have found my dream job and school within Wylie ISD and am so thankful to have found a school like Groves Elementary. I can't wait for another amazing year in Kindergarten with you all! :)
