I found my love for teaching when I was in first grade! My teacher inspired me, so I wanted to be a teacher when I grew up.
After graduating from high school, I attended Bemidji State University and Northland Community and Technical College where I earned an Associates Degree. Time went by, but I still wanted to be a teacher. So while working as a paraprofessional, I attended school full-time, on-line from Bemidji State University for Elementary Education and graduated in December of 2008. I did my student-teaching at GMR-Middle River in the Middle School Social Studies and in the First Grade classroom, with the teacher that inspired me - my former first grade teacher! Wow!
My husband, Stacey, and I have 3 children: Noah, Gabriel, and Ava. I am so excited and thrilled to be a part of your child's life! I hope that you will contact me if you ever need anything!
