Biography

Hi, I am Sandi Tollari. I've been teaching at Goodrell since 1997. I grew up in Des Moines and attended Madison Elementary, Hiatt Middle School, and East High School. I earned a B.A. from Grand View as well as a M.S. from Iowa State University. My husband, Jaime, and I have three children. They are the light of our lives! I love teaching reading and writing skills to middle school students. Eighth grade is my absolute favorite! The best job in the world is working with my students and witnessing them learn and grow.
