•   Welcome to Champlin-Brooklyn Park Academy for Math and Environmental Science!  

        This is my tenth year teaching English Learners! I have a Bachelor of Science degree in French Education, a teaching licensure in English as a Second Language from St. Cloud State University, and a Master of Arts degree in Education in Curriculum and Instruction with a K-12 Reading Endorsement from Concordia University. 

        I live in Fridley with my husband Joe, my dog Trec, and my cat Franklin.  Teaching is one of my favorite activities, and I love learning about different languages and cultures.  When I am not in the classroom I enjoy running, dog training, camping, eating at different restaurants, and traveling to new places!

        I look forward to building relationships with English Learners and their families at CBPA to help students achieve academic success. One of the most rewarding parts of being an educator is helping young students learn to love school and watching them grow into confident individuals!
