Degrees and Certifications:
Augsburg University, B.A. in Elementary Education
Hello! I am so proud to be teaching at Vento since 2013! The positive energy, collaboration, and innovation here makes me excited for each day I spend with our wonderful staff and children. The incredible progress our students make with their hard work, team skills, academic routines, and love of learning is so rewarding. My favorite parts of fifth grade include three-dimensional shapes, algebra, reading comprehension in many genres, early U.S. history, and my amazing coworkers!
After I grew up in Roseville, I graduated from Augsburg College with a degree in Elementary Education. I taught in New York City, Las Vegas, and Chicago before returning to my home state. My family (including my husband, two daughters, and a son) enjoys time at playgrounds, parks, festivals, and libraries. When I am on my own, I love reading, learning about history, and enjoy the relaxing combination of my couch, television, and snacks that are salty and sweet!
