I am so excited to be back in Hudson in a new role–as a teacher instead of a student! I loved growing up in Hudson and figuring out that my dream job was to be a teacher just like all of my teachers I looked up to as role models. After graduating from Hudson in 2011, I attended the University of Northern Iowa where I received my degree in Elementary Education and minors in Literacy and Instructional Strategist I: Mild/Moderate (Special Education). This year is my first year of teaching. I will be the 3rd/4th grade special education teacher. I am really looking forward to having my very own classroom and learning so much this year alongside my students!
