Welcome! This is my sixth year teaching Special Education Language Arts and Social Development classes at OHS. I love to help students improve their reading skills, and I am passionate about working with students (and their families) who live on the Autism Spectrum. In addition to working full time at the high school, I work some evenings and weekends with the Wisconsin Early Autism Project. I also volunteer with the St. Croix Trail Blazers therapeutic riding program in Stillwater and help with Special Olympics Minnesota (SOMN).
I grew up in Luck, WI, and spent time as a photojournalist with the U.S. Navy following graduation. I have four adult children and nine grandchildren. When I visit them on the East Coast each summer, we enjoy spending time together at "Grammy Camp" where we sleep in tents, cook outdoors, make crafts, and play games.
My hobbies include knitting, reading, traveling, hiking (with my two faithful dachshunds Moose and Cooper), and sewing. My doxies tolerate wearing costumes that I create for them; they have won many costume contests masquerading as various animals (crocodile, peacock, caterpillar, and porcupine). In fact, Moose and Cooper have 12K followers on Instagram (@moosencoop) due in part to their willingness to dress up!
