Welcome to Payne Junior High School, home of the Panthers. I co-teach with a team in language arts and math. I also lead a Strategies class.

My Education and Professional Background

Payne Jr. High School 2014 to present. Monticello Middle School, Monticello, Iowa 2006-2014. Mount Mercy College, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Bachelor of Science Degree, Elementary Education.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe each child is an unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. It is my goal as a teacher to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing a safe learning environment that allows risk-taking and encourages sharing of ideas and talents.
