I have had the wonderful opportunity to be an elementary teacher for many years. I taught Second, Third, Fourth Grades and Title I in Greater Northern Minnesota in Frazee, Perham, and Dent for four years. I moved to Minneapolis where I taught in private schools in Minnetonka and Maple Plain for a total of six years. I have been in the Minneapolis District since the 1993 - 1994 school year where I taught Kindergarten at Willard Math Science and Technology Magnet. Since then, I have taught Kindergarten or First grade at Putnam, Howe, and now Dowling Urban Environmental School.
I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota. My Masters degree in Reading is from Saint Mary's University. I have taken many other classes ranging from Science, Geography, Mathematics, Reading, Brain Research, and Writing from other universities. As you can tell I have a wide variety of interests and I love to learn!
I have spent most of my career teaching First graders and really enjoy being with them everyday. I am thankful to be teaching little ones that are so willing and excited to learn. It is a joy to be in charge of their learning!
