     This is my 24th year of teaching; my sixth at Kittson Central! I look forward to each fall as much as I did when I first began. I teach 7-9 English and Computer Applications, as well as an upper level Computer Apps class. I love the enthusiasm and excitement of junior high. My husband Owen and I live on my family farm five miles southwest of Hallock. We have two sons: Bryden, who will be a freshman at the University of North Dakota this fall, and Jadyn, who will be a senior here at Kittson Central. We also have an adorable Australian shepherd named Sven.

Some of my favorites:
        Book- To Kill a Mockingbird
        Movie- It's a Wonderful Life   (I also really loved Hidden Figures and                                         Remember the Titans.)
