I was raised in Prior Lake, Minnesota, and then went on to graduate from Minnesota State University- Mankato in 2012 with a degree in Communication Arts and Literature Education (Go, Mavricks!). While in college, I worked as an assistant Early Education teacher, and once I graduated in the Spring of 2012, I started substituting in Minneapolis and around the Twin Cities until I was hired in November of 2012 to be the junior high Read 180 teacher in Owatonna, Minnesota. I then stayed on in Owatonna for an additional 3 years, working at Owatonna High School during the 2013-14 school year (taught American Literature, Technical/Workplace Writing, and Freshman English), and the last two years back at Owatonna Junior High teaching 7th and 8th grade English. This is my third year in New Prague and at the CLC and I'm exciting to dive into working with all of you!

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, painting/sketching. reading, playing video games, and playing music (guitar, piano, singing, or just listening to records). In the past I have also directed junior high theater, coached Speech, and taught extended day learning. I'm still looking for opportunities to get more involved in the New Prague community and school. 

Please feel free to message me with any questions, suggestions, or concerns you may have about school or assignments. Let's make it a great year!
