About Me

I graduated college in 2005 from St. Cloud State University with a Bachelors of Science degree in Elementary Education.  I was a substitute teacher in the district along with other districts in the area for two years.  I then worked as a Title One Tutor in fourth grade at Minnewaska Elementary.  I taught the Reading Intervention Program for K-4 grades during the next three years at Minnewaska Elementary. For the four years I taught fifth grade and this is my second year teaching first grade.   My husband Brett and I live in Glenwood. We have three wonderful children; Grady, Tate, and Lydia.  Both my husband and I grew up in Glenwood and graduated from Minnewaska Area High School.
