Welcome to our Classroom Website

         I grew up in Fargo, North Dakota and attended Concordia College (Moorhead) where I majored in Elementary Education. After graduating, I headed to the twin cities in search of a job and have been here ever since. I started my career teaching in a middle school and then came to Monroe. Thirteen years later, I’m still here and loving it.  Monroe is AMAZING! This is my first year teaching kindergarden and I'm SO excited!  I taught second grade for 8 years, but have also taught 3rd grade and been the Math Recovery Intervention Specialist at Monroe.  Additionally, I have earned my Master's Degree in Education from the University of St. Mary's.  

         I love living and working in the same community.  I am proud to be a Brooklyn Park resident.  My husband and I keep busy with our three children.  Your student will hear many stories about our 6 year old daughter, our 4 year old twins, and our Springer Spaniel dog.  We love exploring the many parks and trails in our neighborhood, eating at local restaurants, and cheering on Minnesota teams.  

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