I graduated from Winona State University in 1997 with a K-8 Teaching Degree. I then earned my Masters in Education from Saint Mary's University in 2001. This is my 16th year teaching, but my ninth in Montgomery.


This year, you will be given the opportunity to be a bit more independent.   You will get to have your own locker and combination lock.  Go ahead and purchase your own now and practice, practice, practice! You will also be able to go on our annual 5th grade field trip (3 days and 2 nights) to Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center in Lanesboro, MN.  There is information about the trip on my webpage. Fifth grade students also are lucky enough to have all three teachers at some point during the school day. This will be fun way to learn from different teaching styles and get to know more classmates, as well! I hope you are ready to have an amazing year!!  We will have an awesome time experiencing how fun learning can be!  


I currently live in New Prague with my husband of 19 years, Dan, and our three children (Bethany: age 16, Cody: age 14, & Emily: age 11). My family loves doing just about anything as long as we're spending time together!  In the summer I love to camp, read, and hang out with my family!  Besides teaching here at TCU, I also teach dance at To The Pointe Dance Academy in New Prague. 

I am an energetic teacher who likes to learn while having fun!  My expectations are high, but I’m sure you and I, together, will do phenomenal things this year.  Know that it is okay to make mistakes...we actually learn more by doing so! As long as you work hard to do your very best...you will have a very successful year!  I am looking forward to getting to know each of you as individuals throughout this school year.  Please remember that my door is always open!
