Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! I started teaching at Johnson High School in 2007 and have greatly enjoyed the last 7 years of teaching and working with the great staff and students here at Johnson. I attended the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities for my bachelor and teaching degree in English. I went back to the University of Minnesota to complete my masters degree and to also complete a teaching license in K-12 reading.
I have a wonderful husband named Damien and am the proud mother of an active 21/2 year old girl named Kerin Diane (K.D. for short). I was born and raised in south Minneapolis and first became interested in education by spending time in my mother's kindergarten classroom. I also have a sister, Kelly, and three wonderful nephews.
I have always loved reading and writing and hope to pass that passion on to my students, no matter how much they try to resist. In my teaching I believe that every student is capable of greatness and I strive to reach each student to help them became the absolute best version of themselves. I hope that in my classroom I can give every student the skills and talents that will help them to be sucessful for the rest of high school and beyond, no matter their chosen career or field.
