“I did then what I knew how to do. Now that I know better, I do better.” – Maya Angelou

Welcome Horace Mann Kindergartners and Families!   I decided to become a teacher when I was in third grade, after I determined that being a nurse might be a little difficult due to the fact that I found the sight of blood to be nauseating. Luckily, I have outgrown my aversion to the sight of blood and can easily bandage any “boo boos”.  I have also found that teaching is my dream job.  I have been teaching in Saint Paul Schools for over 20 years and am happy to be joining the Horace Mann family, especially as it is my neighborhood school as well.


My goal for students this year is that they continue to be curious and kind learners.  My goal for families is that we communicate and partner well together to support the success of our students.


“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.” -Fred Rogers
