Welcome to my Classroom Website

    I am a special education teacher here at Anoka High school.  I graduated from Minnesota State University Mankato in May 2013 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Special Education: Developmental Cognitive Disabilities. I completed a Master’s Degree in Autism Spectrum Disorders and licenses to teach students with Autism Spectrum Disorders and Learning Disabilities through MSU Mankato in May 2016.

    I grew up in southwest Minnesota where my dad is a farmer and my mom was an elementary special education teacher. In my spare time I enjoy being with my husband Andy, family and friends, spending time outside, running, biking, cooking, playing piano and reading.

    Thank you for supporting your student’s education! I enjoy working with students and watching them grow throughout a school year. Together we can help your child achieve success!
