I started teaching at Arlington High School after graduating from the University of St. Thomas in 2005. I taught at Arlington for five years until it closed. From there, I taught for two years at Highland Park Middle School. I started teaching at Washington in 2012 and was in the classroom for three years. I took a four year break to be a Teacher on Special Assignment, helping second year teachers throughout the district. This is my first year back at Washington and I am teaching Geometry. I hold undergraduate degrees in Mathematics and Secondary Education. I hold graduate degrees in both Curriculum and Instruction and Learning and Technology. I live in St. Paul with my husband, daughter, and step-daughter.
