I am a 1996 graduate of South Winneshiek. I went to NICC for 2 years, then went to Luther College where I received my BA in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Early Childhood. I was hired by South Winneshiek in 2001 to teach special education at the high school level. I went back to college at Upper Iowa, while teaching, to receive endorsements in Special Education through 12th grade. At South Winneshiek, I have taught at the high school level for 6 years, at the preschool level for 6 years, and I am currently teaching kindergarten.
