Welcome to our Classroom Website
    Welcome to Kindergarten!  I have been teaching kindergarten in Anoka-Hennepin School District since 1994. I live in Andover with my husband. We have three adult children who all graduated from Anoka Hennepin Schools.  Outside of school, I enjoy reading, baking, playing games and spending time with my family.
    Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child and watch his/her growth. Together we can help your child achieve success!
