Degrees and Certifications:
Heya there~~ I am delighted to be joining Highland Park high school this year after thoroughly enjoying my teaching experiences at Harding high school for many years where I taught an assortment of courses including 9th, 10th, American Literature, World Literature, Children's Literature, Lovers in Literature, and International Film Studies. This year I am excited to teach 10th and 11th grade English courses. I anticipate guiding students in thought provoking discussions surrounding interesting literature while they strengthen their writing skills.
A bit about me: I graduated with my BA in English from the U of M Twin Cities, earned my teaching license from St. Kate's, and my MAed in Gifted and Talented from St. Thomas. I grew up in St. Paul and continue to enjoy being here with my husband and our three children. In my free time you will likely find me at the playground, passing out popsicles, and reading. I need art, music, coffee, my family, laughter, and kindness in order to thrive. When I grow up, I hope to learn how to play guitar, throw pottery, and travel extensively.
