I have been teaching in Minneapolis for 20 years.  Prior to teaching here at Dowling, I have taught at Bethune, Cooper and Keewaydin Elementary Schools in grades 1, 2, 4 and 5.  My B.A. degree is from the University of Minnesota-Morris, and my Master's Degree is from Saint Mary's of Winona.   Two years ago, I completed my STEM certification at St. Catherine's University.

This year, I have stepped out of the classroom to explore new things.  Besides being the E-STEAM collaborative in grades 4 and 5, I also work with a reading a math intervention group as well as being the liason for the many students teachers and practicum students come to Dowling from  Augsburg, St. Catherine's University and the University of Minnesota.
