This is my third year at Rosa Parks and my eleventh year teaching. Before coming to Rosa Parks I taught at Cleveland Elementary for eight years. I received my bachelor's degree from Minnesota State University, Mankato and my master's degree from Saint Mary's University in St. Paul. My husband and I have two children and live in North Mankato. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, running, refinishing furniture, and relaxing with a good book.
