I have been teaching Norwegian language classes to adults since 1995, Scandinavian folk dance to children and adults since 2001, and Norwegian language classes to children since 2001. I was the Youth Director and one of the Norwegian teachers for Sons of Norway's Columbia Lodge in Vancouver, WA, USA, and am now the Norwegian teacher and Leikarringen Director for Sons of Norway's Grieg Lodge in Portland, OR, USA.
Eclectic, bringing together Montessori, Waldorf, multiple intelligences, and books to make learning accessible to all.
B.A. in Education (Levels 1/2) from Concordia University in 2000.
I am also the author of two children's books. This text box will not let me italicize the titles, though. Meet Tabby the Therapy Cat is a picture book about the life and work of my cat Tabby, who visits nursing homes. It is written for preschool through second grade. Three Feral Kittens is a narrative about trap-neuter-return, following the lives of three kittens born near my house and cared for by my husband and me. It is written for the lower elementary grades and includes educational materials. Both books are available through Amazon.com.
