I have taught for 10 years now! I started teaching in international schools in Kazakhstan and Guatemala and ended up moving back home to Minnesota where I have been teaching elementary English language learners ever since.
I have a passion for learning about the world. I wish for my students to develop a curiosity of the world around them and a love of learning. I try to establish relationships with my students that make them comfortable in my classroom so we can try new things, make mistakes, and learn and learn and learn!
I still hold the V-sit and reach record at my middle school... does that count?!?
-Masters in ESL from Hamline University (St. Paul, MN). -Bachelors in Elementary/Middle School Education from UW-EC (Eau Claire, MN). Minor in Language Arts.
In my free time I love traveling, kayaking, swimming, dancing, and doing yoga. I also like attempting to learn other languages... even if no one understands me!
