I am thrilled to be teaching third grade at Dowling. Dowling is where I first took swimming lessons as a 3 year-old. I am a graduate of Washburn High School and have made my home and career in South Minneapolis. In 1997, I started teaching 5th and 6th grade at Windom Open School. I moved from there to Field School where I taught 5th grade Language Arts. I began teaching here in 2013.
I studied Sociology and Anthropology at Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana to earn a Bachelor's degree. Later, I studied at the University of St. Thomas to earn my teaching license and a Master's degree. In addition to an elementary license, I am certified to teach middle school English, Social Studies and Math.
it is nice to meet students at the door to room 109 each day. Each morning we spend time developing a community that is friendly and works together. I look for opportunities for students to create and lead the learning, especially in writing. There is often an opportunity for students to work in small groups, with a student teacher or a volunteer.
