I know that Goodrell is the best Middle School in Des Moines and feel very lucky to be a part of this community. I have my BA in Elementary Education with math and middle school endorsements. I started teaching at Goodrell in 2005. When I am not at school I love hanging out with my wife and 2 daughters. We enjoy biking, gardening, and doing anything outdoors.

I have been teaching at Goodrell since 1989 and have loved every minute of it. To me, science is a verb not a noun. I believe kids should be actively engaged in class and I hope to provide that for your child. I love to be outdoors either hunting, fishing, bbq'in, or camping. I have triplets that were born in 1996 and a wonderful wife who works in the district as well. I look forward to a great experience with your son or daughter!!
