B.A. Elementary Education M.Ed. in Teaching and Learning
Hello! I am a math teacher here at Highland Park Middle School. This is my 5th year in the building, but prior to working here I taught various levels of middle school math and english for seven years in Maplewood. My undergraduate degree is in Elementary Education with a middle school math endorsement from Saint Mary's University of Minnesota. I also have a M.Ed. in Teaching and Learning from Saint Mary's as well.
When I'm not busy teaching I love spending time with my family, which includes my son Josh, daughter Riley and son Gavin. I also enjoy reading, working out, painting, running and playing/coaching volleyball.
This year I will be teaching Math 6 and Pre-Algebra. All daily assignments and information can be found on Schoology.
Please remember that homework is assigned almost everday. Please take the time to check in with your student to see what they are working on in math class.
