A little about myself...
I was born in Long Beach, CA. My family moved to Granite Falls when I was 5. I graduated from Granite Falls HS and I was a Kilowatt! I attended Concordia College in Moorhead, MN and graduated with a double major in Psychology and Elementary Education. After graduating, I taught 5th grade at the Grand Forks Air Force Base. We moved back to Granite in 1997 after the flood in Grand Forks. I worked on my Masters at SMSU and graduated with my Masters in Educational Leadership in 1999. I've taught at RCW since 1998, starting in Belview, then to Sacred Heart, onto Danube, now in Renville. I've seen and experienced the many changes at RCW.
I am currently in my 25th year of teaching, and enjoying my 5th graders! I love being an effective, caring, lifelong educator!
