I grew up and graduated from the small town of Blooming Prairie. I furthered my education by earning a BA degree in Elementary Education from Mankato State, and a MA degree in Education Leadership from Southwest State.
I landed my first teaching job in Medford after subbing in the Medford District. I began my teaching career in Medford in 2000, and have since taught sixth grade and currently fourth grade.
I am married to my husband, Zach, and we have three daughters. Elizabeth is fifteen years old and is a tenth grader this year, Madelyn is ten and is in fifth grade, and Meadow is six and is excited about first grade. We enjoy camping, boating, playing games, shopping, and we also have a Gladiolus flower business, "Three Glad Girls" that keeps us super busy in late summer.
I look forward to another great school year!
