Welcome to my page! This is my third year as a Reading and Math Strategist which allows me to work with students in Preschool through 6th grade. I am the English Language (EL) teacher which has me working with students in grades K-12 whose second language is English. This school year I am also working as an Instructional Coach. I will be working one-on-one with classroom teachers and I am looking forward to this new role.

I grew up in a very small town in North Dakota called Pembina with my two older brothers. After high school, I received my teaching degree from the University of North Dakota – GO SIOUX!!!! Yes I know their name has changed, but I can’t quit calling them the Sioux.  After graduation, I taught 2nd grade for 4 years in Rolette, ND and 2nd grade for 3 years in Wilton.  I’ve sure enjoyed all my years of teaching and I know there will be many more fun years to come!

I live in Bismarck with my wonderful husband Jon, son Carsten who will be in 8th grade, and a baby boy born June of 2017.  I enjoy cooking and making up my own recipes. I also enjoy traveling, shopping, sports, exercising, and hunting. I am obsessed with peanut butter and could eat it on almost anything.
