Welcome to our Classroom Website

    This will be my 30th year of teaching and 13th year at Dayton.  Prior to coming to Dayton, I worked for St. Paul Public Schools. I have taught 3rd, 5th, and 2nd grades.  Now I am excited to be teaching kindergarten for the 3rd year.  It has always been a dream for me to work in kindergarten!  I enjoy helping children learn and having fun in the process.  It is going to be a wonderful year!


    Outside of the classroom I enjoy spending time with my husband Mike, daughter Teresa (22), and son Caleb (18).  We love being outside golfing, camping, biking, swimming, and fishing especially at our lake home.  My favorite places to visit are the North Shore, Minnesota state parks, and Arizona for spring break!


    On a final note, thank you for supporting your student’s education and working with me as a team! Communication will be the key to helping your child achieve success!  I am excited to work with your child and watch his/her growth!
