I have been teaching students in the School District of Washburn since 1990. This is my twelfth year working with sixth graders. I feel it is my privilege to be a guide, for a short while, in their lives.

I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin-Superior. Since then, I have taken part in many opportunities for professional development as well as receiving a Master's degree with a focus on integrating technology in the classroom.

In my spare time, I enjoy being with my husband, John, and keeping in touch with our daughters. Jenna, married to Chris, lives in Kansas City, Missouri, and Natalie lives in Minneapolis. They balance work and fun, and we are so proud of them. My passions are working with technology, knitting, reading, and listening to music.


My mission is to empower students to recognize their potential, to take risks, learn from successes and failures, and to believe in themselves. I will tap into my students' creativity, arouse their curiosity, and keep alive in them a sense of wonder. I will strive to instill in them the importance of compassion, respect for others and themselves, and a sense of humor. Involved in meaningful learning, we will all leave with a sense of accomplishment each day.
