Degrees and Certifications:
I'm excited for this new year at Marshall High School! This will be my 29th year of teaching and my 5th year at Marshall High School.
I am originally from Bloomington, MN. I graduated from Jefferson, received a bachelor's degree from St. Cloud State and a master's degree from St. Mary's University of Minnesota. I love to read, play volleyball, golf, sing and spend time with family & hang with grandkids!
Oh, I also love to travel! In fact, I have been to Canada, Mexico, Jamaica, Belize, Hawaii, Guatemala, Honduras, Taiwan, Hong Kong, The Netherlands and Australia. All of which come in handy for teaching social studies. In the summer of 2004, I had the opportunity to go to Africa (Mozambique & S.Africa) to work with people affected by AIDS. In the summer of 2007, I went to Vienna, Austria where I coached volleyball! In 2009, I went to Chile & Peru on a Fulbright-Hays grant to study geography and human migration patterns. It was an amazing experience and now I have just one continent left to visit....can you name it?
I look forward to the adventures that this year will bring!
