My kids and I on the last day of school June 2020.
Call or Text 612-351-2206
I love working at Jenny Lind! I have been with Minneapolis Public Schools since 2008 and started as an Americorps*VISTA at Sanford Middle School. I served at Sanford in a variety of roles that exposed me to various parts of the a school from teaching classes, planning field trips, and lots of paperwork! I am excited to be at Jenny Lind and continue to the great work that is happening here. My family and I are proud to call the Northside home! It is fun to run into students and families at community events and programs.
I got my Bachelors of Social Work from Taylor University and my Masters of Social Work from Monmouth University. My Masters is focused on International & Community Development. During my Masters I did an internship in Ghana. I feel like the focus on Community Development and systems work helps me navigate the school district and community resources.
I am very excited to be working with our staff and students. I will be working with all grades this year. I wear many different hats throughout the day and work with a lot of students and families. Please feel free to call me if you have any questions about school, attendance, or other ways we can support your child and you.
I tell the students that I:
listen to students,
listen to staff,
listen to parents/guardians,
care about students,
advocate for students, and
I look forward to meeting with you this year!
