I am passionate about helping students care about learning and learn about caring.
I grew up in the Lincoln and Hickman areas. After graduating from Doane College, I began teaching at Eastridge Elementary. Later I helped open Lux Middle School. From there I moved south....to Cochabamba, Bolivia. I served as a missionary teacher at Carachipampa Christian School for twelve years. I worked with students and families from over fourteen different countries. I came back to Lincoln in 2013 with two suitcases and my two dogs. I returned to teaching here in Lincoln; most recently I was at Saratoga. I am delighted to now join the Roper community, and am excited about getting to know my second-grade students!
