I am a senior at UNI completing my degree in Elementary/Middle Level Education. I hope to teach the Middle Level here in Iowa. I have a part time job at Menards and babysit when I can. When I am not at school or work I enjoy biking, reading, being outside, netflix, and hanging out with friends and family.
