About My Teacher

I am excited this year to be teaching some 6th grade and some 7th grade for the sixth 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 21th year in the district and my 23rd 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 newest 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 3rd birthday in August. She loves swimming and going to the zoo. She is talking and loves Dory and Moana. My youngest is starting 10th grade at Southwest. She plays soccer, basketball and softball and I am kept pretty busy ferrying her to games and practices. She is working on getting her license, but won't be able to drive herself until next summer. Knowing about things from the high school perspective, I will 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!
