Educational History: BAS in Elementary Education with Middle School Math Endorsement, University of MN Duluth

Why I chose to work at Aspen: Aspen is known for having a high level of academic rigor, and also great support from staff and parents. I was impressed by the small class sizes, which allow teachers to meet the individual needs of students.

Hobbies/Interests: I enjoy playing with my new puppy, kickboxing, Zumba, tennis, reading, and playing games with family and friends.

Favorite author/historical figure: I enjoy reading distopian novels by various authors. A couple of my favorites are 1984 by George Orwell and The Giver by Lois Lowry. My favorite historical figure would be Martin Luther King, Jr. He stood up for what was right, which took a great deal of courage, sacrifice and determination. His message of peace and unity still resonates today.

Personal motto/inspirational quote: "Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." William Butler Yeats
