BOOK CLUB TEACHER
I was born and raised in Des Moines, attending Hoover High School. I then went on to Drake University, earning my B.F.A in Theatre Education. Later, I earned my Masters in Education from Viterbo University. I am certified to teach English, Speech and Drama.
I started my teaching career at East High School teaching Drama. I then went on to teach English, Speech, and AP Literature and Composition at North High School for 12 years. While teaching at North, I was an Asst. Drama Director directing plays, coaching events for Speech contest, constructing sets, designing costumes and lights, and more. I then chose to stay home with my son. During that time, I started and have continued to work for Cecelia Talley and DramaTykes teaching drama at daycares, preschools, and elementary schools. I have been with HSAP since 2017.
My family and I like to ride bikes, hike, read, walk our dog, and coach/watch our son participate in sports and the arts.
WHY I LOVE TEACHING
The ability to communicate effectively is a vital skill and I am proud that is what I get to teach. Theatre and the communication arts is my passion. I have been involved in the theatre since I was a child. Sharing my love for theatre and communication with your children is a thrill. Thanks so much!
