Hello. I am excited to begin another year as a Saint Paul Public School educator. I joined the district in 1995 and I have had the opportunity to not only teach but to serve as a leader and champion for students in a variety of leadership positions. I have served as a teacher on special assignment (TOSA) as a content coach at Maxfield and as a Peer Assistance and Review coach to teachers seeking tenure across the district.
My love for learning was nurtured at an early age by my family. I am additionally grateful to have had many intelligent, committed and caring teachers who have made a difference in my life. I hope to continue that legacy for the students in my care.
I am proud to be a member of the Hamline Elementary community of students, parents and staff. I love teaching second graders here and continuing my relationships with them as they move on to the upper grades.
I am married and have an adult son and a daughter who is in highschool. I love music, singing, attending bible study, laughing and learning.
