Welcome to the world of Kindergarten at HNCS! I am so fortunate to teach in a small, family oriented school with 10 amazing students! Our days are filled with language and literacy blocks, the Daily 5, mathematics, Phy.Ed, Music, and integrated science, social studies and health.

This is my 23rd year of teaching, and my fourth here at HNCS. I have taught multi-age (K-2), looping (1-2), kindergarten, and fourth grade. I also have experience as a teaching specialist at the University of Minnesota Morris, which is also my alma mater. :) My passion is the primary grades and early childhood education.

I am married to my best friend, Tim. We have 2 children; Tanner is 16 and in 10th grade, and Tori is 13 and in the 7th grade. We live in Hancock, MN. If you have any questions about our school, or me, please don't hesitate to contact me! I'd love to help, and if I can't answer a question, I'll find someone who can.
