Let Me Introduce Myself

Originally hailing from Minnesota, I moved down to the Verde Valley in July of 2018. I taught middle school Social Studies at Oak Creek School last year, and prior to that was a college access advisor for 2 years in St. Paul, Minnesota, and worked in a German Language Immersion School. I graduated from Macalester College with a degree in Education, Political Science, and German. I have a lil' puppy, two bunnies, and a guinea pig whom I adore, and just got married this past summer! Most teachers have a life outside of school, and I'm no different because I love to read, travel, knit, play with my dog, snowboard, speak German, swim in Lake Superior, play soccer, and paint in my non-school time!

This is me during MY senior year of high school in Wisconsin!

I LOVE traveling! A few years ago I hiked the Inca Trail in Peru, and I studied in Germany and Austria in college too.
