This is my seventeenth year at Lomira High School which is located in Wisconsin. I currently teach AP US History, US History and American Government. I also teach Computer Education and I am involved with Technology Education in our District.
In my opinion, I try to create a positive and safe learning environment where my students explore the content areas in a wide variety of ways. I work hard to accommodate every learning style so I am always tinkering with new ways to get students involved with the material.
I was awarded a Kohl Teaching Fellowship in 2009 by the educational foundation established by Senator Herb Kohl to honor excellence in education. I was also awarded a Microsoft Curriculum Grant in 2000.
I earned my B.S. degree from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and my Master's in Educational Technology from Marian University.
I love golf so much that I coach it and play competitively. I enjoy writing and have one novel (a murder mystery) published. I spend my time outside of school in a country setting with my family which consists of my parents, my dog and my two cats!
