I have been teaching for twelve years in both English and Social Studies. I have been a coach of football, track and field, basketball (boys and girls) as well as volleyball. I have also been the adviser to a wide range of activities.
Hands on and discussion based.
I have multiple coach of the year awards. Was chosen, based on the Holocaust unit I teach, in the summer of 2006 by the Holland and Knight Holocaust Remembrance Project as one of six teachers in the country to spend a week in Washington DC to be trained in the teaching of the Holocaust. During this training we spent time with Holocaust survivors, were trained by Michael Berenbaum and met with Elie Wiesel.
I have a B.S. in History and English from the University of Wisconsin - Superior. I returned to school and earned a Broad Field Social Studies and Langauge Arts teaching license for grades 5-12 from UW - Superior. I also have a Master's Degree in Teaching and Learning from St. Mary's University of Winona Minnesota.
My interests run the spectrum. I love the out doors. I fly fish and hunt a great deal. Primarily grouse and deer hunting (both with a rifle and bow). I have a AKC certified Britanny named Sophie who I hunt grouse and woodcock with. I also enjoy hiking and cycling. I am an avid reader and always have a book in hand. My two favorite books are The Grapes of Wrath by Steinbeck and Night by Wiesel.
