Hello families and students, 

I was born, raised, and now live in St. Paul.  I'm married with 3 children. We enjoy family game nights, movie and pizza nights, hiking, puzzles, reading, and listening to music.  We got our first pet in 2019, a chocolate mini poodle named Cocoa Bear.  In May 2020, we added a teddy bear dog named Scooter.

I've been with SPPS since 2000 in a variety of roles which include: special education TA, classroom teacher for 5th, 4th, and 3rd grade, math lead, math coach, math specialist, and testing coordinator.  In 2021, after 10 years out of the classroom, I returned to the classroom as a 4th grade teacher at MCAS. I truly enjoy being a classroom teacher and the adventures it brings.

I look forward to getting to know you and your student, and all the wonderful things we will learn as a community.

I try to use a blend between iPad and paper and pencil learning.  Here are the apps we use to support our learning:

Schoology - Literacy, Geography

Showbie - Math

Clever - SplashLearn, Reading A to Z, Tumblebooks, Epic!

I typically respond to messages between 3 and 3:45, and 4:15 and 5pm.
