I graduated for University of Wisconsin-River Falls. Then began teaching in 1998.  During that time, I have taught in two school districts, Columbia Heights and Stillwater.  Most of those years I have spent teaching fifth grade, however, I did spend one year teaching first grade and two years teaching third grade.  One of the reasons I enjoy teaching is seeing each student's eyes light up as they learn.  Also, I enjoy sharing with them my love for learning and that learning never stops.
