I’ve been teaching at in the Elk River School District for seven years.  I live in Buffalo with my husband, Daryl and three children, Marcus (5th Grade), Madelynne (1st), and Mollie (2 years).  In my spare time I like to be crafty, play, sew, attempt to garden, hunt, fish, watch sports, and I love to travel!  My favorite spot in MN is the North Shore.

Social Studies/Study Hall/AVID/ADSIS
 
I am currently in my 14th year of teaching.  Prior to Prairie View, I taught social studies at Zimmerman Middle/High School, where I also coached the dance and cheer teams.  I did not enjoy social studies as a student, so, as a teacher, I do whatever I can to help students fall in love with it through hands-on activities and projects!
 
I have 4 children, 3 of whom are students at PVEMS.  I enjoy yoga and weight lifting and have run 3 marathons! My favorite treat is chocolate.  I LOVE Chipotle and eat it at least once a week.  I also LOVE Starbucks coffee! I have 2 cats, Max (7 months) and Milo (6 weeks).

English 

A little bit about me! I attended Winona State University and earned my Associate of Arts degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences. I transferred to the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities and earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education with a specialty in Language Arts and Communications. I've recently earned my Master's in Education at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. Throughout my education, I had many practicum experiences in schools across the Twin Cities where I obtained many important skills that are essential to successful teaching. I taught 5th grade for 5 years at Twin Lakes Elementary School, and this is my first year as a 6th Grade English Teacher! I live in Elk River with my husband Tyler, my daughter Sabrina, and my son Remington! I love to cook, eat, organize, and spend time with my family. 

I strongly believe each student is a unique individual who needs a safe, caring, and motivating environment in order to grow and mature academically, socially, emotionally, and physically. As an educator, it is my duty to support students in reaching their full potential and developing a lifelong interest in learning. I desire to instill the passion I have for learning into my students’ hearts and minds.
