Degrees and Certifications:
I am so excited to be teaching fourth grade at Taylor Elementary my neighborhood school! This is my eighteenth year of teaching, with a total of twenty years in education. I graduated from Viterbo University (located in Wisconsin) with a Master's Degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Early Childhood Education. After teaching for several years, I decided to go back to school for school administration. I love being with the students so much, that after two years of being an administrator, I decided to go back into the classroom: a decision that I am so happy I made. I love teaching! Most recently, in 2019, I achieved National Board Teacher Certification in the area of Literacy, ages 3-12 years.
In my free time, I enjoy traveling, hiking, climbing 14ers, doing obstacle races, camping, and spending time with my dog and family.
