Welcome to the new school year. My name is Mrs. McAndrew and I will be teaching in the science department. I am looking forward to working with and getting to know each of you.


I began my education at the University of Iowa in medical studies and decided on nursing. After getting engaged and moving back to Dubuque to go to Clarke College for nursing, I realized they were closing the Finley School of Nursing and laying off many nurses at both Finley and Mercy Hospitals. Because of that I majored in biology and went into secondary education. I graduated from Clarke College in 1987 with a B.S. in science

Other Information

I have been married to Tim McAndrew since 1985. We Live in Dubuque and have 5 amazing children. I kind of got into education through the back door, but I believe we end up where we belong and I have loved every minute of my time spent teaching children. Some of my hobbies include spending time with family and friends, reading, working out and teaching exercise classes.
