•  Welcome to my Classroom Website

    I started teaching 6th,7th,and 8th grade Physical Education for Anoka-Hennepin in 1990. I attended University Avenue Elementary School, Northdale Junior High School, and graduated from Blaine High School. I received a degree from Augsburg College in 1990 and earned a masters degree from St. Mary's University in 1999.
    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! 



    6th grade will be using standard based grading starting this year. Below is a link with the message sent out by the district explaining this change.

    Gradebooks open all year:

    Important gradebook difference:

    Standards based grading is different from traditional grading in that students may continue to work on a standard or benchmark throughout the year. Often, teachers will introduce a benchmark in one trimester, and then continue to refine it throughout the year as skills progress until proficiency is reached.  You may notice that your child’s gradebook will remain “open” throughout the year so that proficiency can be tracked and a final score given once the student has met the benchmark.
