I attended St. Cloud State University for four years and then graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education K-6.
Throughout my time in collage I had classroom experience in first, second, and fifth grade. I student taught for a full year in a first grade classroom where I had practice working with the whole group of students, small groups of students, and one on one intervention time with students. I also volunteered at the Boys and Girls Club in St. Cloud where I helped students with art and homework.
Reason for becoming a Teacher:
I have wanted to be a teacher my whole life. I love learning and I love having fun with it. All of the students I work with have a special place in my heart. I love getting to know each one and building a fun and safe classroom community. I became a teacher so that my students will see how fun learning can be, not just now, but as their life goes on.
Interesting Facts and Hobbies:
I am very close with my family and love the time I get to spend with them. I have 12 nephews who are crazy and fun and I love hanging out with them any chance I get. I also really enjoy being outside and spending time with my fiancé. One of our favorite things to do together is cook.
