  • 3rd Grade
This will be my 19th year at Notre Dame School. In the past I have been a kindergarten teacher, librarian and Supportive Consultant. I am excited to be teaching 3rd grade here at Notre Dame. My husband and I have been married for 26 years. We have three lovely children. Our daughter, Kari, finished her Navy training at the end of June and will return as a junior to the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. Our son, Max, is a junior at Notre Dame Academy and our son, Alex, is in 7th grade here at Notre Dame. It has always been a dream of mine to teach at my alma mater. In my spare time I like to camp and attend my children's sporting events. I look forward to hopping through the year Fully Relying on God (F.R.O,G.)

Reading  Students should read 20 minutes per day. This year we will be working in our guided reading groups, along with our anthology. We are currently finishing up our guided reading books and I have started to re level the students. Book -it calendars are part of students reading grades and should be handed in at the end of each month. I will be implementing book reports after Christmas break. Each child will be required to do 1 for this trimester. More information on this will be coming soon, so be on the watch for it.

If your child is going to be late for any reason and you do not call in by 8:00-8:15 they will need to bring a cold lunch. You may even call the night before and leave a message if you know your child will be late.
