Prior to becoming the Elementary Principal at Nodaway Valley in 2021, I was a sixth grade ELA instructor and mentor teacher at Nodaway Valley Middle School.

We work hard at Nodaway Valley Elementary to do what is best for our students.  We continue to focus on reading strategies to help all students become skillful, proficient and motivated readers.
