I am a life-long educator! My career began in central Iowa where I was a 5th grade teacher at North Polk Consolidated Schools. A move to western Iowa gave me the opportunity to be a 5th and 6th grade teacher at Tri-Center Community Schools. After a few years at home with young children, I was part of the Council Bluffs Community Schools as a 4th grade teacher and Curriculum Strategist. The latter position was designed to be half-time as a classroom teacher and half time in five elementary buildings working with intermediate grade classroom teachers integrating the current curriculum adoption into their classrooms. My final school district move was to Millard Public Schools where I was a reading specialist, supporting kindergarten through fifth graders who struggled with reading, and a CADRE Associate. The CADRE role provided so much variety! 25% of my time was spent mentoring first year teachers in an accelerated master’s degree program. 25% of my time was spent completing tasks at UNO such as recruiting for CADRE and being a rater for clinical practice assessment presentations. And 50% of my time was spent on district projects, primarily district strategic planning and building site-based planning and school/business partnerships.
