I went to the University of WI-River Falls in River Falls, Wisconsin. I graduated with a degree in elementary education. I then attended the University of MN to obtain my certification in Emotional/Behavioral Disorders and Specific Learning Disabilities.
I started out my career in the Roseville school district and have worked in suburban and inner- city school districts in Minnesota, working with elementary and middle school students. This is my second year now at Nobe and I am excited to be here! The staff, students and parents are great!
Reason for becoming a Teacher:
I had several reasons for becoming a teacher. One was my enjoyment working with children when I was young and would babysit in the neighborhood. Also, my mother was a special education teacher when I was growing up and I could tell she loved her job . My two aunts were also in the education field. Lastly, I love seeing the excitement children show when they experience success, and watching their confidence grow.
Interesting Facts and Hobbies:
I live with my husband in Roseville, MN and our fluffy, gray cat. I have two daughters, Lauren and Megan, ages 23 and 25. I enjoy reading, being out in nature, jogging and spending time with family and friends. About 10 years ago, I ran the Twin Cities marathon! It was a lot of work, but it felt good to accomplish it!
