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!
