5. How long have you been a teacher & where have you taught?
A: I started teaching right after I graduated from college. In the Fall of 1992, I began teaching sixth grade at Oak Grove Intermediate School in Bloomington, MN. The year after, I came to St. Paul Public Schools and have worked in this district ever since. I've taught sixth and fourth grade at Daytons Bluff Elementary from 1993-2000. In 2000-2001, I took a sabbatical to help kick-start a charter school called HOPE Community Academy. After that, I returned to St. Paul and worked at Eastern Heights and Farnsworth Elementary. I accepted the computer science position at Frost Lake Elementary starting 2019-2020 school year.
