Biography

I am a certified K-12 Physical and Health Education teacher.  I attended Grand View College and Simpson College, where I played soccer all 4 years (have been playing since I was 5 years old). I had subbed in the surrounding school districts from 2008-2011, and was a special education associate in the Waukee Community School District from 2011-2013.  I have coached girl's soccer at Urbandale High School( graduated in 2004 from) since 2006.  My family consists of my husband Joshua, our 2 children, Logan and McKenzie, and our two dogs, Gracie and Storm.  When not teaching I love to spend time with family and friends, cooking/trying new recipes, and being outside.  I am so excited to be a part of the Goodrell family, and hope to instill a love of learning in each students' lives.
