I am excited to work with the students and staff at Goodrell! My role is teaching  7th Grade Mathematics. I hold a dual degree in Special Education and Elementary Education from Western Governors University. My husband and I live in Grimes and we enjoy golf, movies, spending time with friends and family, and singing and playing guitar.

I am the special education behavior interventionist here at Goodrell. I started teaching in 2000 as a special education teacher at Hoover High School where I also coached baseball, football, and swimming. I have lived on the East side of Des Moines my entire life. I went to Brooks Elementary School, Goodrell Middle School, and East High School. I am extremely lucky to be working at such a wonderful school in my own neighborhood. My wife Erin is a teacher at Pleasant Hill Elementary and we have one son, Tyler. I enjoy spending time with my family, being outdoors, and cheering on the Bears, Cubs, and Hawkeyes.
