Hello! This is my sixth year teaching second grade at Philipsburg Elementary and I love it. I emphasize a growth mindset in my classroom and challenge students to improve. Our small class sizes are amazing because students get the differentiated instruction they need.
I graduated from the University of Montana-Western with a degree in Elementary Education and a minor in K-12 Literacy. I love to read and love to teach it, as well as reading the research behind teaching literacy so students are receiving effective instruction. Currently I am working towards my Masters of Literacy Education from Hamline University.
When not teaching I am involved with our school garden, as well as reading, hiking, rafting, and skiing. I can also be found volunteering frequently at community events, especially with our local ice rink.
