My teaching career started back in 1990…
After graduating from Carroll University, I accepted a 4th grade teaching position with the Hartland/Lakeside School District. After two years as a 4th grade teacher, I switched to 6th grade where I taught for four years. Then in 1996, my husband and I decided to move to Montana. There, I took a job teaching K-4th graders in a one-room school, and then the following two years I taught 5th-8th grade social studies, and language arts. In 2000, I was offered a 5th grade position closer to my home in Columbia Falls, so I took it. I stayed with the Glacier Gateway School until 2006. At that time, I was given the opportunity to be the K-12 Special Education teacher in Geraldine, Montana, so I accepted and we moved to Central Montana until 2008. In 2008, we sold our ranch and moved to Northeast Georgia. While there, I was a K-2 Special Education teacher. In 2010, we decided to move to Costa Rica where I taught at a private international school for four years. In 2014, we moved back to Wisconsin to be closer with family and friends. I joined the HoNoR family when I was a long term sub at the 3rd/4th grade and last year, I taught 7th and 8th.
...and now, I am happy to say that I am working with amazing 5th graders!
In my free time, I love to spend as much time playing outdoors with Mitch, our three dogs, and my friends as much I can. Hiking, sailing, bird hunting, fishing, skiing, and gardening are just a few of my favorites.
