Welcome to our 2105 Community Page!


I am excited to continue the 2020-2021 school year at Maxfield Elementary. I look forward to seeing some familiar faces and meeting new ones in person.   


This will be my 12th year teaching.  I received my bachelor's degree from Winona State University in Elementary Education.  I just recently finished my master's degree in Educational Leadership and Administration at the University of Minnesota.  (Go Gophers!!). I am married and have two golden retrievers, Ace and Indiana.  My husband, Kyle teaches at Henry Sibley High School and we both love teaching!  


Teaching your child is an exceptional responsibility and I will do my best to ensure that each student has a safe and exciting learning experience this year. I cannot do this without your help!  We are partners in the learning process. I believe that parent-teacher relationships are necessary for ultimate school success. Throughout the year I will communicate through my website, notes, emails, calls, and parent teacher conferences.  I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time. You can call me, send me a written note, or contact me via email. 


This year has been full of difficulties, frustrations, successes, and constant changes.  I am so unbelievably proud of the work we have all done together during distance learning. I look forward to finishing the year in person and can't wait to see the students at Maxfield!
