    Hello Everyone!!!

    Let me just tell you a little bit about myself.  I originally grew up in Alexandria, MN.  After graduation, I made a huge change and went to college at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina.  After 4 1/2 wonderful years there, I wanted yet again to try something new!  So I moved to Arizona, lived in Phoenix and got my first teaching job ever as a first-grade teacher.  It was a culture shock and a learning experience I will never forget! I taught first grade there for three years. I loved every moment but felt the itch to move again.  In the summer of 2007, I got a job at Carver Elementary back in Minnesota.  This is my 12th year here!  I love this school and I love this job!   I can't believe I have been teaching for 15 years...it is the hardest yet most rewarding job ever.  I have loved every one of my students along the way.  
     
    It has been over 9 years with my dog Barnabee now...he is my little monster! He is a mini Goldendoodle (half golden retriever and half mini poodle). I will share many stories about him!  In my free time, I love hanging out with my friends, shopping, movies, and music!  I just sold my house so I am free to travel any and everywhere.  I spent 4 1/2 weeks in Southeast Asia last summer and went on a cruise this past summer.  I have family in Kentucky and Florida and am rarely home on school breaks.  Someday I wish to teach internationally!
     
    I can't wait to meet each and every one of you...please feel free to contact me anytime!
     
    Cheers!
