Physical Education
Valley View Middle School

I chose to be a physical education and health teacher and because I am passionate about the science of the body and the necessity of keeping your body healthy to meet all your life goals. My dream is for all of my students to make physical activity something "they cannot live without" because of the way it makes them feel their best.  I truly believe that with increased physical fitness and with daily vigorous physical activity, people can reach their full potential! 

I have been teaching for 19 years in Bloomington and have been lucky to have experienced all levels K-12.  I earned my BA in Sports Science from St. Olaf College and earned my MA in Kinesiology- Exercise Physiology from the UMN.  I also am US Ski Team certified alpine ski coach. I have enjoyed coordinating a school "Running Club" and a school running program called "Girls and Moms on the Move." In past years, I have coached Cross-Country,Track and Field, and Alpine Skiing at Jefferson High School.

In my free time, I coach alpine ski racing and skiing "dryland" training. I also have enjoyed competing in long distance running, marathon canoe racing, nordic ski racing, and mountain biking. I have most recently visited Tanzania and Iceland, but look forward to traveling more in the coming years.
