    Hello Crossroads Community!

    It is an honor to be your Assistant Principal!  I am very excited for the coming year, and all the new learning we will do together.

    My passion is supporting and serving families in partnership.  I believe that the academic and emotional well-being of our students is deeply connected in this partnership. Making sure that all students have full access to curriculum and community is my main goal.  I have been an educator for over 25 years, working in Richfield, Hopkins, Robbinsdale, and for the last five years in St. Paul.  I was an English Language teacher for most of that time, and for seven years I have been an instructional coach- a support for teachers.  I have attended the University of Wisconsin (BA), University of Minnesota (Master’s of Education) and Concordia University (Educational Specialist).  I have worked in both Montessori and Science schools, and value the benefits of both models.

    My favorite hobbies are sewing and singing, I also love to read.  I have three children, two in high school and one in college (can you find Delaware on a map?  I can!), and my husband works in St. Paul Public Schools as well.  We enjoy being outside, doing (never-ending) house projects, and playing board games together.  This summer we are fostering a momma cat and three baby kittens.  It has been a lot of fun- and a lot of work!

    Whatever mode we are in this year we are always in LEARNING MODE!!  I look forward to connecting with families and staff, please feel free to stop by or drop me a line. I am here to support your child’s success!
