This year, I will be teaching 8th grade Global Studies and the 6th grade AVID elective class. The 2019-20 school year is my 17th year of teaching! Prior to teaching at Justice Page Middle School, I taught at Edison High School in Northeast for one year, and ten years at Rogers Middle School.
I grew up in White Bear Lake and attended Saint Mary's University in Winona for my bachelor of arts degree in social science. I continued my education through Saint Mary's - Minneapolis by earning a masters of instruction, and also hold a certification in gifted/talented education. I have participated in five AVID summer institute trainings to learn AVID instructional strategies.
In my free time, I enjoy keeping up with current events, Minnesota politics, reading, trying new restaurants, hiking in Minnesota state parks and traveling. My most recent travels include Belgium, Sicily & Poland.
