Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome families! I'm very excited to be your childs teacher this year!
I was born in Stillwater, and went to a very small elementary school called Withrow. I graduated from Stillwater Area High School in 1999.
After high school, I went off to St. Cloud State University to study Early Childhood Education.
I received my bachelor's degree in Child and Family Studies with a teaching license for birth-third grade in 2004.
I continued on my path to pursue educating children, beginning with early childhood, teaching preschool for seven years. The young children taught me many valuable lessons. I believe I am not done with my career path, I see myself writing curriculum or training new teachers.
I began teaching at Benjamin E. Mays in 2011 in Second grade. I have been the PreK teacher since 2013 and LOVE it.
When I am not busy at school, I am busy with my family. I have two children. My husband and I like to take the kids to the neighborhood parks, go to Como Zoo, visit grandparents in the country, and teach our children the benefits of city life and country life.
