A Little About the Teacher

I currently live in Prior Lake with my husband, Emmett, and our son, Soren.  I grew up in Montgomery and then went on to receive my bachelors degree from St. Cloud State University.  This is my 9th year with our district teaching kindergarten! 

Before here, I taught kindergarten in Willmar, Eden Prairie, and New Prague.  I have also taught a remedial program with 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade before school program.  Along with 3rd grade, 1st grade, and Kindergarten summer school programs, and a migrant summer school program too.  

When I am not teaching I am loving being a mom but I also enjoy walking my little dog, Olive, crafting something for my home or for my classroom, or having a campfire in my backyard!  I love the outdoors, music concerts, and comedy clubs!  I try to be healthy and earth friendly too and spend a lot of my personal time learning what more I can do :) I am proud to be an advocate of Congenial Heart Defects and the Ronald McDonald House Charities!

I am energetic and bubbly which has us dancing and singing in our classroom!  A strength of mine is classroom management and reading.  I believe that strong communication between parents and teachers is essential and I will do my part to keep you informed of what is going on in our class.  If you ever need to contact me about anything feel free to call or email me anytime.  I am here to answer your questions and to help your child succeed.
