  • I began my teaching experience in Washington, D.C. in 1987 where I spent 10 years there with 2nd graders.  I received my BA from the College of St. Teresa’s in Winona with specialty areas in Psychology and Speech and Language Pathology.  I almost finished my master’s degree at George Washington University in D.C. but was blessed with two children (who attended Minneapolis public schools). My daughter is attending college at the UofMN, and my son attends college in Iowa. I began job sharing in 1st, 6th and 4th grade at Northrop when I moved back to Minnesota in 1997.  In 2010, I began full time teaching as the new STEM teacher, because I love to teach Science and problem solving.  I hope to pass this passion on to your children.  I became interested in teaching science when I noticed that the children in our nation’s capitol were not able to get outside the way we can here in Minnesota.  I wanted these students to have the same opportunity, so I started the first Outdoor Classroom in a National Park in Washington, D.C. where it still exists today.  I also helped to open the National Orkin Insect Zoo in the Smithsonian Natural History Museum.  I see the budding scientist in all students!!!
