Welcome to our Classroom Website
    I LOVE working at Rum River Elementary!  I am an inquiry teacher and my dyad partner, John Keran teaches humanities. This is my twelvth year as a teacher and my seventh year in the district.  I started working at Coon Rapids Middle School as a math teacher when I first started working in the Anoka-Hennepin school district and then came to Rum River! My previous years years of teaching were done at the elementary level in Rochester, MN.  I received my bachelor's degree from the Minnesota State University-Mankato and my master's degree from the University of St. Mary's-Kansas. 
    I live in Coon Rapids with my husband, Andy, our two sons, Landyn (3) and Wyatt (1.5), and two dogs, Lexie and Rufus.  We moved here in December of 2012 and have enjoyed the neighborhood and the area!  In the summer we enjoy boating, relaxing and being outside.
    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!
