I grew up in Golden Valley, Minnesota. Today, my family and I live here in St. Paul, but I have lived in Minneapolis, St. Cloud, Portland, and Seoul.
I have been teaching English Language Learners in St. Paul since 2001. This year I am teaching middle school Level 2 Literacy, Level 2 American History, and Level 1.5 Geography.
The University of Minnesota has been a big part of my life. I earned my bachelors degree in political science. My masters degree was in Second Languages and Cultures Education. My family and I are big fans of Gopher sports, especially Women’s and Men’s hockey.
I look forward to meeting all of you, sharing stories, and answering any questions you may have.
See you soon!
