Welcome to my webpage!  I currently am the Basic Skills teacher at Mendota Elementary. I began my classroom teaching career in 1983, and came to ISD 197 in 1989. I am on my second generation of students at Mendota!  I am a Henry Sibley High School graduate, received my BA from St. Catherine's University and my Masters from the University of Minnesota.
My husband, a teacher at Henry Sibley H.S., and I have three children. Two of them have graduated from Sibley and the other is currently a student at Sibley.  
Outside of school I love to spend time with my family, traveling, reading and exercising outdoors.
