About Me

The past 23 years I have been a teacher in the third, fourth, fifth grade or library media classrooms. I have taught in three different towns: St. Peter, Eden Prairie, and for the past 15 years in Prior Lake. I have a masters in Curriculum and Instruction from the College of St. Scholastica and a Library of Media Science Degree from Minnesota State University, Mankato.

I love teaching and visiting with my students about their latest and favorite books! When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with the six boys in my life: a wonderful husband, three amazing sons, and two fun loving pet poodles. During my free time I also enjoy sitting down with a good book or exploring educational sites on the Internet.
