This is my 23 year teaching, I received my Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education from UW-Stout and my Master’s degree in Teaching Leadership from St. Xavier. Prior to coming to coming to Forest Park, I taught Kindergarten for 18 years at Jefferson Elementary. I came to Forest Park 5 years ago as the Learning Facilitator. I then taught Kindergarten for a year and then looped with my students to 1st grade. I love teaching young children and forming positive relationships with them. The greatest reward is seeing former students and having them tell me how much they loved being in my class. When I’m not teaching, I like to spend time with my family. I have 2 boys, ages 12 and 14. We love traveling to Door County every summer and Phoenix in the Spring.
