I am very excited to be teaching 6th grade English. I have worked in Mahtomedi as both a teacher and instructional coach for many years. I received my bachelor's in education from Gustavus Adolphus College and my master's in Curriculum and Instruction from Mankato State University.
I live in Woodbury, MN with my husband, Dave. We are parents to three children. Britta and her husband Eric work as construction engineers in Minneapolis. Ana is a senior at Michigan State University. Our youngest child, Eric, is beginning his junior year at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities.
In my free time I love to read, walk, bike, visit with friends and relatives, drink tea, and knit (a relatively new hobby.)
