I am originally from the Twin Cities area. After graduating from MSU, Mankato I began my teaching career in St. Paul where I taught 1st grade from 2003-2006. I then relocated back to Mankato and worked as a Title One teacher and Reading Intervention teacher at various schools for five years. During that time I also went back to MSU, Mankato and earned my master's degree in reading.
I am now back to classroom teaching. I taught kindergarten at Roosevelt Elementary for 2 years and now I am teaching kindergarten at Rosa Parks.
My husband and I live in Mankato with our 3 daughters. In my spare time I enjoy reading, scrapbooking, cooking, traveling and watching movies.
