About Me: I absolutely love teaching and I can't imagine doing anything else. Teaching is my passion that I am very enthusiastic about. I have so much fun working with children!

Educational History: I went to Winona State University to obtain my Early Childhood and Elementary Education degree. I attended Apple Valley High School prior to college.

Why I chose to work at Aspen: I really love the small class sizes that charter schools offer. It really enables me to get to know my students so I can differentiate instruction and ensure all students are growing to their fullest potential. I also love the sense of community at our school.

Something new I hope to incorporate in my teaching this year is: I am so excited that we will have a media room with our amazing expansion! Our hope is to incorporate technology every other week and expose students to some awesome technology and resources.

Hobbies/Interests: I have three children who keep me extremely busy...and I love it! My hobbies/interests are watching all of their sporting events, taking them to fun places, and creating precious memories with them. When I'm not running around, I enjoy relaxing and reading.

Favorite author/historical figure: It's hard to choose! Some of my favorite children's book authors include Roald Dahl, Patriccia Polacco, and Kate DiCamillo.

Personal motto/inspirational quote: I can't help but live by the saying that all things happen for a reason. I have also learned that Never give up. Never, never, never give up by Winston Churchill has really inspired me. My personal favorites are from my father, which is to have a reasonable amount of fun and things will have a way of working out.
