Bio

I am a young teacher who has a passion for kids. Ever since I was a little girl I had a dream of 2 things. 1)to become a mother 2) to teach. I was never a student who was confused about what they wanted to be whenever they grew up. I knew I was meant for the teaching profession ever since I can remember, and I knew I wanted to be around kids for a living. Within a year, both of my dreams came true. I began my first year of teaching in 2016. I was hired at Worth County Elementary school where I worked with 3rd grade. Little did I know, that I was also expecting my first child as well!

I am married to Dustin Larkin, who is a football coach at the high school. I love spending my Friday nights under the stadium lights during the fall rooting on my husband's team! In April, we brought our sweet daughter into the world and what a ride it has been!! Are hearts have experienced a love like never before. That summer, my husband got a new football job coaching at Cook High School. We packed up our baby girl, and our house, and moved down the road to Adel, where we live now. I was blessed to be able to get hired pretty quick at Cook Elementary School where I am still with my 3rd graders.

I can honestly say that I enjoy coming to work every single day. Teacher is such a passion and I love to see the "lightbulb" go off in my students head during lessons.
