I began teaching in 2012 in Rifle, Colorado. For seven years I taught 7th grade social studies. In 2019, my family moved to Saint Cloud and I taught 6-8th grade social studies at Athlos Academy. In 2022, I began teaching 7th and 8th grade social studies at North Junior High. I enjoy reading, being outside, and learning about the world through the lenses of my two kids. I love teaching middle school and seeing how much growth kids make, literally and figuratively, from when they begin 6th grade to when they set off for high school.
