• Hey, Bobcats!

      I am so excited for another year at Bridges Elementary! There is no better school than ours! We have an amazing school and an awesome kindergarten team—there will be lots of fun things going on this year.

      I am originally from a small town in Iowa. I graduated from The University of Iowa in December 2006. Following graduation I taught kindergarten and reading in my hometown of Forest City. I moved to the valley in July 2007. Before coming to Bridges, I taught for 9 years in Mesa, teaching both kindergarten and first grade. I absolutely LOVE kindergarten!! This will be my 11th year teaching in Arizona!

      When I am not at school, you will find me hanging out with my family. My husband and I have a two year old daughter named Charlie. We love to be outside, go for bike rides around the neighborhood, and cheer for our IOWA HAWKEYES!! 

       I am so excited for the year ahead. It's going to be great!
