I am so happy to be part of the Lake Harriet community for my 2nd year! This will be my 17th year of teaching, and my 8th year with Minneapolis Public Schools. Prior to coming to Lake Harriet I spent 6 years as the Math Specialist at Jefferson Community School, 5 years teaching 6th grade at San Miguel Middle School of Minneapolis, and 5 years as the middle grades lead teacher at Urban Venture’s Learning Lab.

I love the energy and enthusiasm of 6th graders—6th graders are busy figuring out who they want to be and what they want to stand for.  What a privilege it is to share such an important time in their lives.

I live in the Powderhorn Park neighborhood of Minneapolis with my 3 year old son, Kai. He’s into vehicles, water, fruit snacks, and books. Outside of school I enjoy biking, being crafty and exploring.
