I am so excited to work with you and your student!  I wanted to introduce myself as the Orange Crew’s special education teacher.  It is going to be a year full of fun, learning, and lots of adventures and I cannot wait to see what the year has in store for us!  I thought you might like to know a little bit about me! 

I have lived in Minnesota most of my life and currently live in Minneapolis.  I attended Champlin Park High School.  I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire in 2005.  I am in the process of completing a Masters of Special Education through Walden University.  I have two chihuahuas that keep me on my toes.  I enjoy crafting, reading, yoga, and volunteering as a Volunteer Coordinator with Underdog Rescue-MN. 

This is my seventh year of teaching and my first year as a part of the Jefferson Community School family.  I am beyond thrilled to be here!  I look forward to a great year together!
