Hello!  I am excited to be a member of the Ramsey community this year as a Learning Lead.  I have been an educator in St. Paul for 21 years and have had many roles.  I have worked in the ALC as an ELA and Social Studies teacher, I was at Harding High School for 10 years as a Social Studies teacher and MYP Coordinator, and the last few years I was a teacher on special assignment in the Office of Teaching and Learning with Talent Development and Acceleration Services.  With my IB MYP experience I am thrilled that I get to continue to work with an IB school.  

When I am not working I am spending my time on a softball field, basketball court, or soccer field with my two girls.  I have coached softball for the last 5 years and love being involved with youth sports.  I am also a runner and work out every day.  This helps me keep a healthy balance of work and home life.
