Welcome to another year with the New Richmond School District! This is my 8th year teaching! I spent my first five years teaching second grade at Paperjack Elementary, I spent my 6th year as the WIN teacher and Paperjack, and then took a year off! During my year off, I had my first child, Preston, who is now two. I also finished my adminstrative degree through the University of Wisconsin - River Falls. After my year of leave, I was ready to get back into my own classroom again. I came to Hillside, eager and ready to teach 2nd grade again. This is now my second year back in the classroom, with second graders!
I grew up right here in New Richmond. After high school, I attended the University of Northern Iowa for Elementary Education. After a semester, I decided to continue my passion of running and elementary education and I transferred to the University of Minnesota Duluth. I ran track and field there for four seasons and was the women's team captain my senior year.
When I'm not at school, I like to be outside! Some of my hobbies include running, kayaking, biking, snowmobiling and spending time with family. I love to run so much that I have actually completed three marathons and ran two other races that are 200 miles long. I ran with a team to finish those ones! I also love to cheer on the Green Bay Packers. My husband and I go to a game every year. GO PACK GO!
