TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 16 years in both English and Social Studies. I have been a coach of football, track and field, basketball (boys and girls).. I have also been the adviser to a wide range of activities. I currently coach football at Proctor High School and track and field at the College of Saint Scholastica. I also taught the Social Studies methods course to people about to student teach in MN and WI at the U of Wisconsin - Superior for seven years.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Student centered hands on and discussion based. I allow a great deal of student choice in how they are evaluated and assessed. All activities/lesson/assessments are aligned to the MN state Social Studies and Reading/Writing standards.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have multiple coach of the year awards in both basketball and track and field. Was chosen, based on the Holocaust unit I teach, in the summer of 2006 by the Holland and Knight Holocaust Remembrance Project as one of six teachers in the country to spend a week in Washington DC to be trained in the teaching of the Holocaust. During this training we spent time with Holocaust survivors, were trained by Michael Berenbaum and met with Elie Wiesel. Was nominated as Teacher of the Year at Proctor High School in 2015. Nominated for the Gilder and Lehrman History Teacher of the Year award three years in a row.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a B.S. in History and English from the University of Wisconsin - Superior. I returned to school and earned a Broad Field Social Studies (history concentration) and Langauge Arts teaching license for grades 5-12 from UW - Superior. I also have a Master's Degree in Teaching and Learning from St. Mary's University of Winona Minnesota.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

My interests run the spectrum. I love the out doors. I fly fish and hunt a great deal. Primarily grouse and deer hunting (both with a rifle and bow). I have a AKC certified Britanny named Sophie who I hunt grouse and woodcock with. I also enjoy hiking and cycling. I am an avid reader and always have a book in hand. My two favorite books are The Grapes of Wrath by Steinbeck and Night by Wiesel.
