I have been in the field of education since I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a degree in elementary education. I began my career as a second grade teacher while pursuing a master’s degree in reading and language arts.
At Simpson, I have the opportunity to work with students who are entering the world of teaching. I serve several roles within the education department. I am the placement coordinator and work with area schools to provide excellent experiences for all of our students out in the field. I also serve as the department’s licensure official to insure our students meet requirements to become a licensed teacher. I enjoy working with students. Meeting with students, advising, and supervising student teachers are all highlights of my job.
