I am an Early Childhood and Family Educator with certification in Secondary FACs as well. I am a certified Love and Logic Instructor. I teach at the Jail and do community classes. I have a passion for teaching and love both the children and the parents. It is my hope to guide them in this wonderful process. 
I have 3 adult children and 7 grandchildren (5 and under), all of whom keep me current (and humble). I have taught in Brainerd for 22 years, but began my teaching career at Magic City High School Campus in Minot, North Dakota. I am a country girl at heart after spending stints living in cities like New York.
 Brainerd's ECFE is a wonderful program to be a part of. I welcome you!! 

New Classes for fall 2014 begin September 22! Second semester classes begin January 26, 2015. The guide comes out January 12, 2015.
