Degrees and Certifications:
I am entering my 4th year at Obama as a Physical Education teacher and 8th year in the district overall. Previously I have worked at St. Anthony Park Elementary, Highland Park Middle and High-School and was a guest teacher at several schools when I first started out. Over the last 6 years I have coached football, hockey and baseball in the district at Highland Park High-School and am currently an assistant coach for the football team.
This past year I was a varsity assistant hockey coach at Farmington High-School, where we made the AA boys hockey state tournament for the first time in the schools history. This coming year I will be an assistant varsity hockey coach at Blake High-School.
I am also a student of SPPS, growing up in St. Paul I attended Mississippi Creative Arts Magnet, Murray Jr. High, and Como Park High-School. I went on to play hockey at Augsburg College in Minneapolis and received a BA in Physical Education.
I am excited about the coming school year, working with the incredible staff and scholars here at Obama!
