I grew up in Winona, MN, and attended college at St. Cloud State University. I earned an elementary education and middle school license with a minor in mathematics. I also completed my coaching license. I began teaching at Mahtomedi Middle School in the fall of 1993, and I coached the varsity girls tennis team for a few years before I started a family. In 1998 I completed my Masters of Arts in Education degree from St. Mary's University of MN. I am really excited to be teaching fifth grade math and literacy this year.
My husband teaches sixth grade math at the Middle School, and we have three daughters who go to school in Mahtomedi. In my spare time I enjoy golfing, scrapbooking, playing tennis, going for walks & runs, reading, traveling, and going to our cabin in the summer.
