    I graduated from Tartan High School in 2009 and returned as a teacher in 2018. I am also an alumna of Century College (Associate of Arts, 2011) and the University of Wisconsin-River Falls (Bachelor of Science in Biology, 2015). Before coming back to Tartan, I taught for a year each in Rockford, IL, and Brooklyn Park, MN. My hobbies include video/computer/phone gaming, singing, reading, and Renaissance dances--which I would usually be performing at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival around this time. :) I am also the Anime Club supervisor, though that is currently on hiatus during distance learning.
    I believe that all students deserve a safe and caring learning environment, and promote science as a means of thinking critically about the world around us. Never be afraid to ask questions, and remember:
    Curiosity is just the beginning.
