     Instructional Coach


    Welcome to Oakdale! This is my fifth year as an instructional coach and I'm excited to once again provide support and guidance to teachers and students. Before moving into the role of coach, I taught kindergarten for ten years - three of those right here at Oakdale! I grew up in Eau Claire, WI and have lived in MN since I started college at Hamline. At Hamline, I've completed my Bachelors, Masters (MaED) and K-12 administrative license. My husband (Rick) and I live in Forest Lake. When we aren't at work we are busy chasing after our two children (Charley, 3 years old & Cortlin,1 1/2 ) and our dog (Coco, 14 years old).

    Please contact me at any time if you have questions about curriculum or instruction. I look forward to collaborating with staff, students, families and community members throughout this year so we continually increase student achievement!
