Hey ya’ll Welcome to Garton Physical Education!
This will be my 7th year teaching Physed. I attended Grand View University and earned my bachelor’s degree in K-12 Physical and Health Education from Simpson College. I taught 4 years at Goodrell Middle School (2013-2017) and been teaching elementary Physed since then. During the spring, you can find me on a pitch coaching soccer at Urbandale High School, where I have been coaching since 2007.
When not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I have 4 kids and 2 dogs that keep my husband and I very busy between all the activites they’re involved in. We especially enjoy Friday nights as a family as it is always pizza and movie night at our house with popcorn and M&Ms of course.
I look forward to another great year teaching Physed at Garton Elementary!! Go Wildcats!!!
