    Background:  I grew up in White Bear Lake and received both my Bachelor's and Master's degrees from St. Mary's University of Minnesota.  This is my 14th year at McKinley.  Previously, I taught for one year in the Mounds View School District.  I love teaching and especially enjoy McKinley!  Our students and staff are wonderful!
     
    I live in Coon Rapids with my husband Ryan and our daughter Daisy, who was born in May 2018.
     

     

    wheaten terrier dog    
    My husband Ryan and I have a Wheaten Terrier puppy named Arnie Palmer. He's very friendly, and loves playing with kids and other dogs.
    Hobbies: I really enjoy spending time with my family and friends.  I love to challenge myself by trying new and exciting things.  Previously, I trained and completed a sprint triathlon.  I have also been skydiving twice.

    Travel:  I love to travel!  Recently, I have been to Colorado, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Florida, Jamaica, and Hawaii.  My favorite was Hawaii! 

    I have been to Norway and Sweden to visit relatives.  I also spent one summer teaching English in France.  It was an amazing learning experience.
