Welcome to 7th and 8th Grade Language Arts. It is going to be a wonderful year. I'm am looking forward to partnering with so many of your families for the first time- and some of you again for another year of learning and growth.
I am so proud to be part of a staff of teachers who truly loves spending their day with kids. It is such a privilege to help foster your children into lifelong learners.
Prior to teaching, I received my undergraduate degree at the University of Wisconsin Madison (Go Bucky!) in the field of Journalism. I spent a few years working in Chicago for a newspaper and parenting magazine. After moving to the Twin Cities, I spent several years working for WLTE Radio, and then finally decided to listen to that voice in my head that had been telling me to go back to school to teach! I received my Masters from the University of St. Thomas and never looked back. Becoming a teacher is one of my proudest choices in life, coupled with being a mom of two amazing and extremely busy boys!
If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me. The classroom is always open to you, and I look forward to spending the year getting to know your families and watching your kids grow.
