AR Due Date:
March 31, 2019


    This is my seventh year teaching at Kittson Central and my 25th year overall!  My husband, Owen, and I live southwest of Hallock on my family farm. I love it! We have two sons; Bryden is a sophomore at the University of North Dakota, and Jadyn is a freshman at the University of Minnesota Crookston. They both enjoy college and are playing football on their college teams. We are really proud of them for working hard to achieve their goals. We also have my favorite dog in the whole wide world, Sven Larson Swenson. Come visit- he loves guests!
    I had kind of a long summer at home after an ankle reconstruction surgery in June.. It's slowly healing, and soon I'll be running around. I'm very thankful for my husband and friends. 

    My all time favorite book is To Kill a Mockingbird. Everyone needs to read this book and think about its message, especially with everything going on in our world right now. Atticus reminds Scout, "You never really understand a person until you consider his point of view-- until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it."
    Some of my other favorites:
    Song: (I have two.) Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's "Somewhere Over the            Rainbow" and Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World" (Listen to them! They are linked.)
    Movie: (I have many I love; here are a few.) It's a Wonderful Life; Remember the Titans; Hidden Figures; Secondhand Lion
    Food: homemade caramel rolls; Chinese
    Place: the farm
    Place Visited: Glacier National Park; Austria
    Most Want to Visit: Italy; Alaska
    Sport: Football
    Holiday: Christmas- of course!
    Hobby: reading, baking, camping
    I feel blessed teaching at Kittson Central. Our students are amazing!
    I am looking forward to another terrific year.  "Teaching middle school is an adventure, not a job." Angela K. Bennet
