I am a graduate of Carroll University, with a bachelor’s degree in social work and a minor in business. Upon receiving my social work degree, I moved from New Berlin, Wisconsin to Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. I worked for Dodge County Human Services for 10 years. Then I returned to Carroll University and received my degree in elementary education with social studies minor. Employed by Van Brunt Elemtary since Aug. 2004.
It seems like yesterday that I started teaching at Van Brunt Elementary. During this time I have been a long term substitute teacher, a fourth grade teacher, an eighth grade teacher, and my current position as a third grade teacher.
My husband Scott and I live outside of Horicon with our two sons, Austin and Brett. We enjoy camping, fishing, and watching our sons play sports. I am also a pet lover. Our family has six dogs and four cats. I enjoy spending my time exercising, swimming, gardening, and following the Brewers.
My goal for each of my students is to enjoy learning, so that they become lifelong learners. I recognize that each student learns differently. Therefore, I use a variety learning strategies in my classroom. It is my job to tap into their potential so that they will grow and feel successful. I look forward to seeing amazing learning happening in room 261!
