Welcome! I am so grateful to be part of the team here at Farnsworth Aerospace. I have been teaching English Language Arts (ELA) here since 2013. This year I will be teaching 6th and 7th grade students. In our classroom we work on building a reading life and learning how to write in various genres. Reading helps students build empathy, learn about their world, and become critical thinkers. All of these skills are necessary to being current and future leaders. In addition to reading we discuss important ideas and work on our written and verbal communication skills. Farnsworth Aerospace is a special place to teach and learn. One of my favorite things about working here is the diverse backgrounds within our community. We have the opportunity to learn from one another and have our perspectives widened and lives enriched by those around us.
In my personal time, I enjoy being with my family! With our two young kids Annika and Soren, my husband and I spend a lot of time in the summer outside at parks, on walks exploring the outdoors and staying cool at the Phalen Splash Pad. A cup of coffee and a good book (probably a memoir or historical fiction) are things that you might find me with outside of school!
It is an honor to teach and learn here at Farnsworth Aerospace! Please feel free to contact me at anytime!
