Elementary Teacher Associate
I lived in Des Moines until 9th grade, then moved to Montezuma where I graduated from high school in 1988. After graduating high school, I attended Kirkwood Community College for two years. I went straight into the workforce after college, working in the office at Victor Plastics where I also met my husband, Brad Cook. We have four girls together. I starting working at Longfellow Elementary in 2008 as a para-educator. I love spending time with my family, two dogs, and working in my gardens. I also really enjoy meeting new people when I travel.
