This will be my 10th year teaching, eight of which have been spent teaching fifth–seventh grade in both Wisconsin and Minnesota. Most recently, I served as a Teacher on Special Assignment for Winona (MN) State University teaching undergraduate education courses, before returning to my home district as a seventh grade social studies teacher.
I earned my bachelor’s degree in elementary/middle level education from the University of Wisconsin–La Crosse and my master’s degree in literacy and leadership from Cardinal Stritch University. In addition, I have served as an adjunct instructor for Winona State University since 2013. My passions in teaching include project-based learning, soft skill development, and education reform.
