As a graduate of the School District of La Crosse, it is with great excitement that I am teaching in the district that scaffolded my learning. I moved away for my college experience and completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Wisconsin – River Falls. During my college experience, I had the opportunity to teach in a variety of settings; some settings include urban, rural, inner city St. Paul, public and private institutions, and abroad in Australia. I have an appreciation for the La Crosse area and I am proud to be back. I first started teaching Kindergarten in the Fall of 2010. In December 2012, I graduated with my Master’s Degree from UW-La Crosse. In July 2017 I added an administrative licensure through Viterbo University.  I am a life-longer learner myself, I went back to UW-La Crosse to earn my 316 Reading License during the 2018-2019 school year.  After teaching Kindergarten for nine years, I took on a new role at Southern Bluffs, as an academic Interventionist.  I am looking forward to working with students in the areas of reading and math!

My husband, Alex, and I purchased a home in La Crosse and added a yellow lab, Patrick, to our family (2009). We have two daughters, Jillian was born January 2014, and Ellen was born March 2016.

I look forward to a wonderful year! I am excited to learn and grow with my students and their families. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to talk to me in person, before or after school, or contact me via phone or e-mail.
