BIO

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). I finished my master's degree during the pandemic! My daughter is beginning a photography career in LA, and my son is beginning his law career in Minneapolis 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 capital 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!!!
