Hello...I am so glad to be part of your child's year in first grade.I am going into my 29th year of teaching...I know I can hardly believe it myself. Twenty-two of those years have been with first graders. I am married to my best friend Paul. I have two boys and two step daughters. My youngest son Loren is a freshman at UW-LaCrosse pursuing business. Joseph, my oldest, is a senior at Viterbo. He will graduate in December with a degree in Health and Wellness Administartion. My twin step daughters are also in school. Brooke goes to UW-Eau Claire and will graduate in May with an accounting degree. Bre is at University of Indiana working toward a medical degree. I enjoy spending time riding my bike, working with my flowers, cooking, and reading. My passion is working with children and helping them discover who they are and everything they are capable of becoming. I am looking forward to a great year!
