Welcome to room 107. I am thrilled to be at Northrop this year teaching 2nd grade. We will ALL be learning together this year! We will be talking quite a bit about "Growth Mindset" throughout the year, so make sure to ask your child about it.
I have taught kindergarten and first grade for the last 17 years at Andersen Elementary in Minneapolis. Our family lives in SW Minneapolis and I am looking forward to biking with my son (a 4th grader) along the creek most days. My wife and I are a bit anxious about sending our daughter off to middle school. We all love reading, biking, camping and learning.

I will check my email every day 8:45 and 3:45. Most days I will also check it at 12:50. My preference is email, but I will also check my voicemail before and after school.
If you are making a change in your child's pick-up routine please send me an email the night before so that I am sure to see it, even if I have a substitute.
