Welcome to US History at Murray! We have been through a lot lately and I am looking forward to seeing all of you.

A little about me . . .

Before I taught at Murray, I taught at Expo Middle School as well as at Cleveland Quality Middle School. A few years ago, I joined the District's professional development initiative called Disciplinary Literacy. This allowed me to work with teachers across the district in all of our junior high buildings.

I graduated from Hamline University with a degree in History in 1992. I also have my Masters from Hamline, which I completed in 2001. I have been teaching in Saint Paul Public Schools since 1994.

A few personal details. I have two kids.  My oldest graduated from Como Park High School and is currently in the Minnesota National Guard.  My youngest is in high school and is cautiously optimistic about being in school again.

I love to read. I have been devouring all kinds of books, but I need a new series. Please give me some recommendations!

This summer, we spent time at our family farm in Pelican Rapids, Minnesota.  I also went to Gettysburg with Mr. Beck and Ms. Major.  It was very powerful and we were really geeky.

E-mail is the absolute best way to get ahold of me.
