Degrees and Certifications:
I joined the first grade team at Chelsea Heights Elementary in 2014 and the district in 1994. I had previously taught at Roosevelt Elementary for 2 years and at Four Seasons A+ Elementary for 17 years before moving to Chelsea Heights. I did my undergraduate studies at the University of Minnesota and graduate studies at St. Mary's University. My degree is Elementary Education (1-6).
I grew up in the Frogtown area and attended St. Paul schools. My family and I currently live in Maplewood. I have four children - a 29-year-old son and three daughters, ages 21, 27 and 28. All of my children were products of St. Paul Public Schools. I enjoy traveling, trying out new recipes, and just hanging out with my extended family.
I love the Chelsea Heights School community. I enjoy coming to work and seeing my curious first graders learn and grow daily. Teachers and staff at Chelsea Heights work hard to develop and enhance the love of learning in all our students.
