Welcome to 4TS!
Hi 4TS Families!
I am so happy to be a part of your child's educational journey!
I have been teaching 4th grade for 28 years, all in the Anoka-Hennepin School District. Most of those years were spent at Ramsey Elementary. When Brookside Elementary opened, I was so fortunate to have the opportunity to move to a new school with many of the same students! Teaching children reading and writing is my passion!
For fun outside of work I love to read, walk, decorate, and design jewelry! I also like to spend time with my family.
I have two sons, and a daughter-in-law. My son Ryan is 25 and a graduate of Anoka High School and the University of Northwestern, St. Paul. Ryan is presently the co-owner of the Minnesota Icemen Baseball Club. My son Andy is 20 and also a graduate of Anoka High School. He is presently attending the University of Northwestern, St. Paul. Andy is studying accounting and finance. Both of my sons loved their time in the Anoka Hennepin School District and enjoyed competing in baseball, hockey, and football.
My husband Kevin and I have been married for 28 years. Kevin is a LMFT (licensed marriage family therapist) and works for Nystrom and Assoicates in New Brighton. Kevin and I enjoy reading, cooking, traveling, watching sports, and taking our dog Ripken for walks.
Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excied to work with your child and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success!
