  I have been teaching here at River Valley since the fall of 2004. My hometown is Peterson, Iowa. I received my BA from Buena Vista University and my MAE from Briar Cliff University. I teach 8-12 Language Arts and am the coach for individual and large group speech. You can often catch me in a production at the Cherokee Community Theater practicing the skills I coach!
