This is my seventh year in the Middleton - Cross Plains School District. I was so very excited to be a part of Kromrey's inaugural fifth grade class. My husband, daughter, and I moved here from Chicago nine years ago. Yes, this means your child is being taught be both a Bears and Cubs fan.  This is my 25th year in education.  On the weekends you can usually find me cheering on my daughter on the basketball court. As your child may share with you, I am also passionate about my dog Harley. His name is referenced at least once a day.

My online class activation code is LRKW7.
