I was born and raised in Iowa Falls, IA. I graduated high school in 2007 from Iowa Falls-Alden High School. After graduating high school, I took classes at Ellsworth Community College where I was on the golf team and received my AA degree in Liberal Arts. Among those two years I also coached the Iowa Falls-Alden 7th grade boys basketball team. In the fall of 2011 I graduated from The University of Northern Iowa with a degree in Industrial Technology Training and Teaching. I was a student aid for a few weeks for the Iowa Falls-Alden School District at the 6th grade level during the last few weeks of the spring semester. My first full time teaching job was in the town of Westside, IA teaching Industrial Tech. for the AR-WE-VA School District. I was only there for one year before getting the present position I am in teaching Industrial Technology here at Hudson.
