Education:

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Minnesota State University, Mankato with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and a Middle School minor in Communication, Arts, and Literature.

Experience:

I am very excited to say that this will be my fourth year at Noble Academy! I can’t wait to teacher first grade again this school year. I also have a variety of teaching experiences ranging from PreK - Middle School.

Reason for becoming a Teacher:

I knew from a very young age that I wanted to become a teacher. I knew that I wanted to work with kids and teach them all the things they needed to know to be successful. A former teacher also made me see that becoming a teacher isn’t just something I want to do, but something that I NEED to do! She taught me that a teacher is more than just a person who stands up in front of a class and lectures about a topic. A true teacher is able to stand up in from of a class and engage students into every single lesson taught. A true teacher is able to guide and support their students to grow into lifelong learners. I’m enthusiastic when I say, that is exactly what I plan to do.

Interesting Facts and Hobbies:

When I am not in the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my husband, family, friends, and I can’t forget my dog.  I love spending time out on the lake boating, fishing, and enjoying the weather. I enjoy reading, may it be picture books to my students or Nicholas Spark in my spare time.  I am also big sports fan! Go Twins and Vikes!!
