    Welcome to 8th Grade Language Arts! It's going to be a fantastic year. 
    This is my 7th year teaching, and my second year at John Glenn Middle School. I am very proud to be a part of the John Glenn community! 
    I earned my Bachelor's degree in English Education from University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire in 2012, and my Master's degree in Curriculum & Instruction from University of Colorado-Denver in 2016. I've taught 7th and 8th grade literacy for my entire career so far, in Minnesota, Colorado, and Wisconsin. Middle school is the best! 
    In my spare time, I love to travel, enjoy the great outdoors, spend time with family and friends, and read books from my never-ending book list. My husband Sam is an Dean of Students for Forest Lake Area Schools, and we also have a spunky five-year-old Corgi named Louie who loves to play fetch and get into trouble.  
    Please reach out with any questions! I am also available afterschool from 2:20-3:15 on most Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.
