Degrees and Certifications:
Hello- This is my 4th year teaching at HPMS. However, I have a much longer connection with Highland Park. My grandparents moved here in the 20's, my father attended Horace Mann, and I was born just a few blocks away! I've also spent a lot of time living in Wisconsin. I recieved my BA from UW-Eau Claire and my Master's from UW- River Falls. Along the way, I also attended Sophia University in Tokyo, Japan, ITESM in Monterrey Mexico, and Hamline University here in St. Paul.
I live a bit north of St. Paul and my two children, 14 & 15, attend The Centennial School District. My husband and I enjoy spending time with our kids, camping, hunting, fishing, cooking, and traveling.
This year, I am teaching Exploring Spanish, Spanish 1, Global Studies, and Global Studies in Spanish Immersion.
Spanish students will soon be able access our new digital textbook. NO more paper copies! It is VERY important that students have a charged i-pad in class each day. I will be posting updates on my HPMS web page (world Language- Spanish) and I soon hope to be linked to all of the teams I see each day. I will use Schoology for assignments and materials, and I will be using Infinite Campus (parent portal) for all grades.
Email is the best way to contact me.
firstname.lastname@example.org for all communication
email@example.com for handing in work
My phone extension is 8881.
I'm looking forward to a fun and rewarding year!
