I look forward to working with you and your child this year. I anticipate a successful, productive, and exciting year! This will be the start of my 16th year of teaching. How quickly time has passed!! I have been a first-grade teacher for all 16 years; however this will be my fourth year teaching at Mississippi. I have taught first-grade in Minneapolis, North St. Paul, and the Osseo-Maple Grove District.
I graduated from the University of St. Thomas with a double major in Elementary Education and Psychology. I received my Masters of Arts in Education degree from Hamline University.
I live in Coon Rapids with my 12-year-old daughter and eight-year-old twins - one boy and one girl. My oldest is now in middle school!! Where did the time go?! This summer I was able to enjoy quality time with my children going for walks, playing at the park, and swimming.
I love teaching first-grade because it is a year of amazing growth both academically and socially!! I am lucky to be a part of the amazing staff at Mississippi and I am looking forward to another great year!
