I have been a 4th grade teacher since 1999. Believe it or not, I am teaching in the very same classroom in which I was a 4th grade student way back in 1984. It is such an honor to teach in the community that I grew up in. I am devoted to my profession and nothing gives me more pleasure than to design instructional materials that engage my kids and strengthen their abilities as students.
My teaching style is a wee bit on the structured side, but full of rich and meaningful learning experiences. My passion is writing. I love giving the kids the tools and support that they need to believe that they are authors!
My husband and kids think that I am pretty awesome....that is enough for me!
I graduated from the University of North Dakota with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education.
