Degrees and Certifications:
The 20-21 school year marks 13 years for me in St Paul School District and 8 years at Groveland Park. My educational background includes degrees in K-5 Elementary Education, 5-8 Sciences and Environmental Education and Natural Sciences. My classroom goal is to create a positive, inclusive learning environment by getting to know each student individually and giving all my students an opportunity to share their thoughts and ideas. In doing so I gain an understanding of their learning styles, background and culture. When I am not teaching, I love to hang out with my family and explore the outdoors by hiking, biking, kayaking, and traveling. I also love, love, love to read.
