Welcome to my class! I have been teaching here at Alden-Conger since the fall of 1998. I have taught multiple grade levels in that time. I started out teaching Title I and First Grade. I have been in Third Grade for thirteen years, with a year of Kindergarten in between. I received my B.S. in Elementary Education and a minor in Specific Learning Disabilities from Winona State University. Later, I received my Masters of Education from St. Catherine's.
My husband and I have two grown children, Jacob and Rachel, and a "grand dog" named Winnie. We currently live on a hobby farm. It is special to me since I grew up there. We have some cattle, a pony, a dog, several cats, and a pot belly pig. All those animals are quite entertaining and I love to share stories about them.
