Welcome to our Classroom Website

    Welcome to another school year at Franklin!  This is my 23rd year of teaching. I have taught second through fifth grades, and this year I have the privilege of teaching 3rd grade again. 

    I am passionate about being an educator, because I see every day how learning can shape lives.  

    I moved to Minnesota ten years ago from Kentucky, where I raised my two children, Elizabeth and Peter (now in their 30s!).  I live in Andover with my husband Don, my stepson Dylan, my dog Sargie and my kitten, Daisy. I love bicycling, dancing, and being with friends and family.

    Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your children and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success!
