My Favorite Saint: Saint Jane Frances de Chantal is a favorite of mine because she was a wife and mother of six who, after her husband passed away, started an order of nuns that served the community around them.
My Favorite Outside of Work Activity: I like to read – especially historical fiction and biographies. I also like spending time at our cabin near Ely, MN.
My Favorite Children’s Book: Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon is one of my favorite books because it teaches kids about a growth mindset through funny stories!
My Favorite Place to Visit: I enjoy spending time at our family cabin on Farm Lake near Ely, MN.
Education: I have a Bachelor of Arts from the College of St. Benedict as well as a Master of Education from the University of Wisconsin at River Falls.
My Teaching Philosophy: I feel that intentionally and specifically teaching children how to identify, name, and understand their feelings will go a long way towards allowing them to live a meaningful & fulfilling life.
