A Little About Me:

I started my teaching career in Newton in 1996 and served eight years before leaving the district to be a stay-at-home mother.  After spending 11 years in Northern Iowa, my family and I moved back to the Newton area.  I was fortunate enough to be hired back and allowed to work in leadership roles.  It is with great pride and excitement that I now begin a new adventure back where it all started for me so many years ago!  Here's to a great year of learning and fun ahead!
