Welcome!Hello! This is my 2nd year in the Anoka-Hennepin school district, and will be teaching 8th grade Global Studies and 7th grade U.S. Studies at Coon Rapids Middle School. I am so excited to enter back into the community that prepared me for life after high school (former L.O.Jacob, CRMS, and CRHS student). I graduated from the University of Minnesota with a BA in Global Studies with an emphasis on Africa, the Environment, and Sustainable Development. After graduating I spent time working and volunteering for various organizations, including a school located in a Maasai village in the Kilimanjaro region of Tanzania. Following this experience I earned my masters degree at the University of Minnesota where I focused on social studies education.I look forward to learning with you as we adventure our way through the 2017-2018 school year!
