Hey, I hope you are having a great day! I am new to Capitol View, and I can not wait to get to know everyone here. I have served Des Moines Public Schools since the fall of 2005, and have loved every year. I taught 4th and 5th grades, I served as math coach and Dean of Students at Lovejoy before moving to Monroe and serving as Dean of Students. Now I serve as the Associate Principal at Capitol View! I attended Simpson College for undergrad and got my masters degree from Drake University. I love spending time with my family, watching my children and husband play soccer and visiting family in Honduras. My husband and I have eight children and love having fun together!
Hello! I have been at Capitol View since the fall of 2013. Before that I was the principal at Madison Elementary on the northeast side of Des Moines for ten years. Prior to becoming a principal, I taught in Des Moines for over 15 years, teaching 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades.
I moved to Des Moines immediately after graduating from UNI and have never looked back. I love living here, and especially love working for DMPS! I received my administration endorsement through Iowa State University so I cheer for the Panthers and the Cyclones, but not the Hawkeyes. J
I don’t have a lot of free time, but when I do, family is my priority. I have two adult children, but grew up in a very large family with five sisters, and two brothers. We are all very close and spend time together whenever possible.
