Degrees and Certifications:
It’s exciting to be at John A Johnson in my first year as a Jaguar. I’ve taught in the St Paul Public schools for many years in grades 2, 3 and kindergarten, and as a Gifted/Talented Specialist. My Elementary Education degree is from Western Michigan University, with specialties in Early Childhood Education, Math, Science and Language Arts. My Masters in Education is from St Mary’s University with a focus in Multicultural Education.
When I’m not teaching I enjoy being with my family and friends, spending time outside gardening, biking, kayaking, hiking, running, and reading. Winter is my favorite season and I get out skiing and snowshoeing as often as the weather permits it. I live in St Paul and delight in being able to bike or walk to the Mississippi River and several lakes.
John A Johnson is an awesome community of families, students, and staff!!
You’re always welcome to visit and contact me!
One of my favorite quotes is: “Guide your students to find their wings.” –anonymous
