• Welcome to my classroom website

    Hello and welcome. I am still fairly new to Minnesota, having moved here from New York two years ago. Teaching is a second career for me, after having worked as a non-profit executive for the past 20 years. This is my third year at Jefferson Elementary, my second as a special education teacher. I have two children, Isaiah and Tori, who both attend Blaine High School. While I haven't always worked in education, I have been passionate about helping children and providing them with all the tools they need to succeed not only in school, but in life. I am excited to be a part of your child's journey.
    Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success!
