The 2017-2018 school year will be my 23rd year as a teacher at River Ridge. I have spent 19 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. I have three children, Noelle who is a sophomore at Mount Mercy University in Cedar Rapids and Bennett and Parker are juniors at River Ridge.
