• Welcome to 5MF!  


    I am thrilled to join the Hoover team this year.  I spent the last six years teaching 5th grade at a charter school, and taught kindergarten, 3rd grade, and 4th grade prior to that.  Fifth grade has always been my favorite grade to teach. I love how humorous and creative fifth graders are, and what amazing problem solving they are able to do.


    I grew up in Crystal, MN.  I graduated from the University of Minnesota Duluth with a degree in Elementary Education and Middle School Math.  I currently live in St. Louis Park with my husband, baby girl, and dog. I enjoy playing strategy games (Settlers of Catan, Code Names, etc.), kickboxing, Zumba, and taking walks with my family.


    I’m excited for us to work together to help your child have a great year and prepare for middle school!
