• Hello!   I am very excited to begin my second year as the Tiger Quest teacher for all 3 elementary schools here in New Richmond. 
     
    My husband, Brent, and I have lived in New Richmond for nearly 10 years.  We have 3 children Kira, Ashlyn, and Blake.  We also have a big furry dog named Windsor.  Before coming back to the classroom, I worked in various positions within the New Richmond community including head coach for the New Richmond Area Tiger Sharks Swim Team, and teaching swim lessons and lifeguarding at the Centre.   
     
    I grew up in Edina, MN and attended college at Iowa State University.  After completing my Elementary Education degree and teaching 6th grade in Ames, IA for 2 years, my husband and I moved to Palm Springs, California.   While in California, I taught 4th grade until we moved to New Richmond in order to be closer to our families and begin a family of our own.  I recently completed my Masters degree, also from Iowa State University, in Curriculum and Instructional Technology. 
     
    When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family, walking, boating, biking, hiking and watching movies.  I also enjoy swimming, and have recently discovered the thrill of open water racing.  I also enjoy scrapbooking and cardmaking.  I'm a huge Minnesota Wild fan as well as a Vikings fan!
