TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I'm a passionate third grade teacher who loves my job! I taught first grade before switching up. I am always looking for authentic learning, innovative teaching, and avenues for bringing fun to my classroom. I haven't always been a teacher, though. I was a graphic designer before deciding to go back to school when my girls were little. I have my bachelor's degree in education from Augsburg College in Minneapolis, and my Masters in education from St. Mary's University in Winona.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Work hard, have fun, laugh often and make some mistakes along the way! I absolutely love to think outside the box and bring new experiences to my students.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Augsburg.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Undergraduate from Augsburg College, MN Masters from St. Mary's University

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Living life creatively, parenting with laughter and love, and teaching like my pants are on fire. I love to create lessons and activities, believe passionately in math and science, and just can't seem to get enough reading!
