    I have 33 years teaching experience, 27 years teaching in Anoka Hennepin School District, I have taught 6 - 12 grade health and physical education. I earned my B.S. in Physical Education, Health Education, Coaching (Moorhead State University/University of Minnesota/College of St. Thomas)and my M.S. in Experiential Education (Mankato State University). I am married, 3 children and a dog! Things I enjoy are outdoor activities, reading, scrapbooking, traveling and spending time with family and friends!  
    My philosophy of teaching physical education centers from fitness, not athletics.  Everyone can move and play!  Sportsmanship and treating each other with common decency regardless of ability is very crucial to success in class.  Effort/attitude is key.  If your child experiences opposite of this philosophy, please let me know immediately so that I can address the issue.  
    Recreation is for enjoyment of life, when your legs start moving your thoughts start flowing and success is on the way!
    Thank you for supporting your student's education! Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Together we can help your child achieve success!
