Greetings from 5th grade! The 2017–2018 school year begins my 18th year of teaching. I am overjoyed to be teaching in my hometown, where I grew up and graduated with a wonderful educational experience. I attended college at Winona State University, where I majored in Elementary Education and earned licensures in Middle School Life Science and Social Studies. My Masters in Educational Leadership is from Southwest Minnesota State University. My home is in Luverne with my husband Matt and our 2 children, Charlie and Ingrid.
