I've been a middle school teacher in Iowa and South Dakota for the past 11 1/2 years. I started as a special education teacher and now teach technology to 4-8 graders. I am currently in my 5th year at Dakota Valley. I am married to Brian and he's a civil engineer with the USDA. I have 3 children - Brady, Anna and Leah. Brady is 24 and in the Air Force. He's about to deploy for the 2nd time. Anna is a senior at DVHS and a lifeguard at the YMCA in South Sioux City. Leah is a 10th grader at DVHS and was a member of the state championship volleyball team.
