Welcome to our Classroom Website
I have been teaching in Anoka-Hennepin for 20+ years and have been at every middle school and high school at some point in my career. For the past 16 years I have been teaching every content area, foods and nutrition, clothing, fashion, interior design, child development, interpersonal relationships, and independent living/finance. I have been very active in continually working with curriculum and learning new and innovative programs to keep my best practices current and updated with our changing world.
My husband and I live in Ramsey and have raised four sons all of who attended Anoka High School. My hobbies include gardening, sewing, and traveling.
I’m very active in my professional organizations, serving on the Board of Minnesota Family and Consumer Sciences for 14 years, and I’m currently President of our Association. My professional high light was when I was named the Minnesota Family and Consumer Sciences Teacher of the Year for 2011.
I would encourage students to get involved in the following two student organizations. Both focus on leadership skills.
• FCCLA (Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America)
• FEC (Future Educators Club)
My advice to students is “Don’t look at the glass half empty, look at it half full.” You can accomplish whatever you go after.Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success!
