Social Studies

I am teaching 8th grade World Geography on the Fighting Irish team.  I graduated from Minnesota State University, Mankato with a B.S. as a double major in Social Studies Education and History.  During my undergraduate program I was fortunate to have the opportunity to study abroad in Rome, Athens, and Syracuse in the Mediterranean Myths and Monuments program through Arcadia University.  I recently completed my M. Ed. in Learning Design and Technology from St Mary's University, Minnesota. 

I have spent the last five years teaching in the Waseca Public Schools district at both the high school and junior high levels. This will be my sixth year as a teacher and each year I get more excited to work with students and be a part of education. I believe in lifelong learning and helping student develop academically and as individuals. I enjoy traveling, camping, reading, and sports. I can't wait to get started this year and I look forward to working with the students at NPMS!
