Department:Physical Education/ Health
Grade: 6th & 8th
Welcome to Maplewood Middle School! I am in my 9th year at Maplewood Middle and am currently teaching 6th and 8th grade Physical Education and Health.
Growing up in Lacrosse, WI I always knew I wanted to go to a big city for college which is how I landed at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. In 2007 I graduated with an undergraduate degree in Kinesiology. I decided to stay at the University for one more year to earn my Graduate and Masters degree in Applied Kinesiology with an emphasis in Physical Education. I graduated in 2008 with a teaching license in Physical Education, Health Education, and Developmental Adapted Physical Education.
I started my teaching career in Phoenix, AZ where I spent 2 years teaching 7th and 8th grade Physical Education and Health. I decided it was too far from family and friends so this brought me back to Minnesota and have been happy at Maplewood Middle ever since!
