About My Teacher

I am excited this year to be teaching some 6th grade and some 7th grade for the fifth year! I am so lucky that I get to team with some marvelous teachers! I have been teaching in Minneapolis for a while (this will be my 20th year in the district and my 22nd as a teacher!) I still love teaching middle school!

I am a self-confessed nerd and will be happy to discuss my favorite geeky books, graphic novels and why it is awesome that the next Doctor is a female!

I have four kids- I am still wrapping my head around the fact that I am a Grandma- Harmony had her 2nd birthday in August. She loves swimming and going to the zoo to see the "cows." (All the animals are cows to her!) My youngest is starting 9th grade at Southwest. After three years of having her here at Anthony with me, this will be a big change! She plays soccer, basketball and softball and I am kept pretty busy ferrying her to games and practices. As I learn about things from the freshman perspective, I will definitely be passing on "words of wisdom."

In addition to being a teacher, I knit, crochet, make art, read and help my parents with their resort business. Trust me, keeping busy is the secret to a long and happy life!
