I started teaching at St. Dominic School in 2001. I have a B.S degree in Elementary Education from the University of Minnesota Mankato, with a Coaching Certification, and a Health/Physical Education Concentration. I also have my Master’s degree from the University of St. Thomas in Curriculum and Instruction, with a K-12 Reading Certificate.
As most of my former students will tell you, I LOVE to read. It is my passion. I want to share this passion with all of my students. I try to show them it is not important what you read as long as they reading. My favorite moment is when you can match a reader with a book, and see that look in their eyes of true enjoyment. I am also passionate about math. I love to share this passion with kids who are hesitant or think that math is not one of their strengths. Once we start the process of breaking the problems down, they realize that they too can be a successful mathematician!
In my tenure here at St. Dominic School, I have taught 3rd, 5th, 7th and 8th grade, and now I am in 6th grade. I loved each grade and I am always amazed at how much the students teach me! It is truly an honor to be work in a profession where we get to work so closely with parents to help educate their children. With this partnership, we are able to share in their child’s growth over the course of the school year, both physical and academic. I look forward to new experiences that I will have this coming year and I am excited to be working with all of our amazing families!
