About Me

This is my fourteenth year in GRACE and eighth year at Notre Dame of De Pere teaching second grade. Previously, I spent six years at St. Thomas More in Green Bay teaching preschool and kindergarten. I am originally from Manitowoc, but live in Appleton currently. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay majoring in elementary education and psychology. This fall, I will be pursuing my Masters of Education degree with a Math Interventionist certificate from UW-Stout. My favorite aspect of teaching is when children have that "a-ha!" moment and are excited about learning! I strive to be the best that I can be and expect the same from my students. I feel very blessed to be a part of the Notre Dame community! Remember to always be at "STAR-Show Thankfulness and Respect!" 🙂
