I grew up in Maplewood, Minnesota and attended Weaver Elementary, John Glenn Middle School, and North St. Paul High School. After high school, I went to the University of Minnesota, Duluth and graduated in 2008 with a bachelors of science in Elementary Education with a minor in Social Studies Education.
I have taught at Noble Academy since 2009. I taught EL for a year and then have taught 5th grade or 6th grade since then.
Reason for becoming a Teacher:
I love teaching students! I grew up with an aunt who was a teacher in Joliet Illinois and she would tell me stories all of the time about things that her students did. I remember playing school and always having to be the teacher. I love to see what my students are capable of!
Interesting Facts and Hobbies:
I have a 6 year old dog named Duluth who is in love with his little human 6-month old brother Everett. I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Brendan, since 2010. We enjoy spending weekends with our families, going on vacations, and trying new things.
