Hello! I am starting my 14th year at Missouri Valley and my 28th year in education. I was a special education teacher for my first 24 years in education and have served as the 6-12 Instructional Coach for the past 3 years. Although I still get to work with students every day, my main focus as the Instructional Coach is on working with teachers to implement effective instructional strategies. This school year, I will also be working with our students who are taking courses online.
