She was a first grade student teacher at Frank White Elementary during the 2000-01 school year with Mary Frahm, and has been teaching for 20 years. She is currently the gifted and talented teacher for students in grades 1-5 in Stewartville. Last year she was an online teacher for second and third grade students who chose that option.

Her parents are Ed and Peg Branham. “I owe them credit for being a good teacher by being kind to everyone and working hard,” she said. “Mary Frahm was a huge influence to me when I was her student teacher. She taught me to care about my students first by getting to know them as individuals. She was also patient and incredibly kind to her students, their parents and her colleagues.”
