I am originally from Hopkins, MN and I attended Minnesota State University Moorhead. I graduated in 2003 with a bachelor's degree in social studies education with emphasis in American History and Sociology and in March of 2012 I earned a Master's degree in Differentiated Instruction from Concordia University. I began my career in education at Humboldt High School in St. Paul and in 2004 I was hired at Kennedy. I have taught American History and Civics for the past ten years. I truly love working with the students and staff here at Kennedy! I stay busy outside of school by spending time with my husband, my 4 year old son Will, 1 year old daughter Lucy, and our dog Truman. I love reading, travelling, cooking, and watching sports - especially football, baseball and hockey.
