I grew up in Minnesota, but I earned my undergraduate degree in Special Education and Elementary Education from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. I began teaching in 1999 at a Middle School in Oregon. I loved the mountains of Arizona and Oregon, but found my way back to Minnesota. I taught at both Cottage Grove Junior High and Woodbury Middle School as a special education teacher for 9 years. I went back to school to get my reading license and that's how I ended up here! This is my 7th year as the reading specialist at Mahtomedi Middle School. I love teaching reading and working at this great middle school! I look forward to getting to know you this year!
