About Me:

Raised on a farm in Faribault, MN, I had always wanted to be a teacher!  Being #5 of 7 children taught me to work hard for what I wanted, share, cooperate, and have fun.  I attended Catholic Schools my whole life--Faribault Divine Mercy and Bethlehem Academy, The College of St. Benedict with an Elementary Education Degree, an Autism Spectrum Disorder Certification from the University of St. Thomas and a STEM certification from St. Kate's.  

This will be my 23rd year teaching in Catholic Schools with this being my 12th year at Sacred Heart.  I am married to Brian, have 2 step-children, Hudson and Hayley, and live in Plymouth.  

School-wide theme this year:

stands for . . . 
Prayer, Respect, Integrity, Determination, Excellence

Proud to be a Sacred Heart Ram!

My Philosophy:  
I believe that every student, given a positive learning environment filled with challenges, creative energy, related consequences, and an element of surprise, can enjoy learning.  I work hard each day to get to know my students at a personal and academic level in order to better relate to and help them to learn.  Working and communicating together--families, student, and teachers--we can have a successful year!

Welcome to 5th Grade!  I am excited to be back teaching at Sacred Heart for the 2018-2019 school year!  I will be teaching 5th grade reading, math, Language, Social Studies, and Religion as well as 6th grade Language. I am equally excited to work with the Middle School science teacher, Mrs.Petit, who will teach 5th grade science and the many other specialists as SH. Together we will make 5th grade a positive learning year filled with challenges, surprises, and fun!

Please stop by and introduce yourself to me! Since my room has always been downstairs, I haven't had the advantage of seeing your familiar faces each day while you came and went upstairs.  There are some new families this year for me, and I would enjoy getting to know you!
