    Third-grade teacher
    Welcome to the school year!  This will be a super year for all of us! Please be sure to contact me throughout the year with any questions or concerns you might have.
    Let me tell you a little about me. I grew up on a farm in southwestern Minnesota. I earned my undergraduate degree at the College of St. Teresa in Winona, and my Master's Degree at the University of Minnesota. 
    I have held many jobs over the years. Among others, I've walked beans, worked food service, waitressed, given tours at a railroad museum, and cleaned homes. The best job, of course, is teaching. I've taught every grade from first to fifth in four different schools. I have been at Carver for over twenty years!
    When I'm not teaching, I'm busy with my two sons--both of whom are Carver graduates. We enjoy our lake home in Wisconsin, and we like to visit my extended family in southwestern Minnesota and South Dakota whenever we can. My hobbies include reading, gardening, and stamping.
    I am looking forward to a terrific year at Carver!
