I hope to maintain and grow the available technologies for Teachwell so teachers have the ability to positively influence students through the use of that technology.

Goals for the future? 

I plan to further my education, but as of yet, I'm unsure in which direction I would like to advance.

What is your background experience – degrees, experience, skills?

I have a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Mathematics from Iowa State University. I was a Mathematics teacher at Boyer Valley Schools in Dunlap, Iowa for 10 years and then transitioned into a leadership role as a Technology and Instructional Coach or Boyer Valley and the neighboring district Woodbine, for my final year. I was also the head basketball coach for 10 years and was assistant and JH coach for football for numerous years.

People would be surprised to know that I...

am a life-long University of Iowa Hawkeye Fan, but attended and graduated from Iowa State University. (The equivalent of being a Coyote fan and graduating from SDSU)
