My husband, Bryan, and I live in Hartford, SD. We have three children: Maty, Dan, and Jaxon. I have taught MS and HS math in Nebraska, Kansas, and SD.
I am interested in teaching pre-service teachers. In addition, I am interested in coaching, mentoring, and supervising students at various levels in their pre-service programs.
I have an interest in new teacher induction programs.
