My name is Denise Menne. I will be the new second grader teacher at WC this year. I live with my husband and two boys on an acreage outside of West Union. My oldest son, Ian, graduated from NFV in May and our youngest is a sophomore at NFV. My husband is a carpenter. I am a UIU graduate, earning my BA in 1996 then going back later to get my teaching certification. I have worked with children and families for many years and taught 4-5-6th grades at Sacred Heart in Oelwein. I love to spend time with my family. I love history, reading, and DIY. My husband and I love to hike and be outdoors. I am looking forward to my new adventure at West Central.
