I have just completed 21 years as a teacher at River Ridge. I have spent 18 of those years in third grade. I have a bachelors degree in Early Childhood education from the University of Dubuque. I also have a master's degree in teaching from Columbia College.
I am married to John Reese who works in Elizabeth at Hoskins Building Center. I have three children, Noelle who is a freshman at Mount Mercy University in Cedar Rapids and Bennett and Parker are sophomores.
