I graduated from Augustana College (Sioux Falls, SD) with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in elementary education.  I taught first grade for a year at a small Catholic school outside of Hastings, MN.  I started as the School Age Child Care Director at St. Hubert Catholic School in 2003.  I spent my days working with the half day kindergarten students before switching roles to become a full-day kindergarten teacher in 2008.  I received my master's degree in differentiated instruction from Concordia University in 2013.  I LOVE working with kindergartners!  Their energy, compassion, and enthusiasm are contagious and they make me smile every single day.  In my spare time I enjoy chasing after my two boys, gardening, and reading.  I feel blessed to be a part of the wonderful, warm community of St. Hubert Catholic School both as a teacher and as a parent.
