Degrees and Certifications:
As a child one of my favorite activities was playing school, I even asked for an overhead projector for Christmas one year! I followed my dreams to become a teacher and graduated from the University of N. Texas with a minor in Elementary Education in 2001. In 2009, I completed my Masters Degree from National University with a Reading Specialization. I've been in Education the last 18 years as a Reading Specialist and English Language Arts Teacher. I have a passion for reading and enjoy sharing the wonderful world of literacy with students.
I was born in St. Paul, Minnesota but my life journey took me to adventures in Texas, Arizona, and California. After marrying my husband in California we decided raising our children in Minnesota was ideal for our lifestyles. Today we have two young children and enjoy exploring all the beauty, wildlife, and temperatures Minnesota has to offer.
