I joined the Hillis staff during the 2015-2016 school year. I have taught for 30 years in the Des Moines Public Schools, and I am also a graduate of the Des Moines Public School District. My previous experience includes teaching grades K-5, Reading Recovery, Title 1 Reading, Title 1 Math, and I was a school Literacy Leader. Third graders are my favorite grade to teach. I love their budding independence and zest for learning. I believe learning doesn’t end at the classroom door, and parent involvement in education is paramount to student success.
