Welcome to the 2018-19 school year!
This is my second year in Roseau and my fifth year of teaching!
I am from Ashby, MN—a small town where I graduated with twenty-eight classmates. Thanks to great teachers and a passion for all things reading, writing, and communicating, I knew that I wanted to teach English-Language Arts, so I enrolled at Minnesota State University Moorhead and graduated in 2014. My husband Jesse and I moved to Roseau in 2016. We live in the country with our cat Peaches and not-so-little pup Chance.
Previously I taught 7th and 8th grade English, Journalism, and 6th grade.
I believe students can achieve great feats through engagement and positive attitudes. Let’s make this a great year!
