I am an EL teacher currently working with students and teachers in second and third grade. I began teaching at Eastern Heights in 2014, but I have been working as an EL teacher in St. Paul Public Schools since 2003. I was a Peace Corps volunteer in 1999-2001 in Honduras. When I returned I decided to become an EL teacher.
I love teaching kids, meeting their families, and learning from my students, who have so much to share. Outside of school I am busy with my husband and our two children's activities. I like to travel to other countries, go camping, grow veggies and flowers for birds and bees, play sports, bike, hike, bake, and cook. I am honored to be part of the Parent-Teacher Home Visits Project and am enjoying learning more about my students and their families through this exciting opportunity. I love working at Eastern Heights, it is a great community to be part of.
