About Me

    

I have been teaching for eight years.  I previously taught first grade in North Dakota, and have taught third grade in the wonderful STMA district for the last seven years.  I am originally from Minot, North Dakota, where I graduated from Minot State University.  My husband and I moved to Minnesota in 2006 to continue our teaching careers.  We welcomed our son, Kaeden, in September of 2008 and Brodrick (Brody) came along in October 2011.  In our spare time we love traveling, being outdoors with our boys, going swimming, reading, creating arts and crafts, and having family movie nights!  I love teaching because I enjoy seeing children learn, grow, and gain self-confidence in their learning.    
     I enjoy swimming, basketball, watching football, baseball(GO CUBS!!), and exploring outdoors.  I LOVE reading, home projects, painting, arts and crafts, gardening, and being with family, which includes four brothers, two nephews, and six nieces! 
   I am so excited to be your child's teacher! We are going to have a fantastic year full of exploration and achieving new heights!
