I am thrilled to be teaching 1st grade at Hillcrest! This is my ninth year teaching first grade at Hillcrest. I have also taught second and third grade. I am so grateful that I get to spend my days working with six and seven year olds! My husband and I live in Eden Prairie and love to spend time with our families, travel, and exercise. The highlight of my summer was traveling to Cape Cod where we biked, hiked, and ate delicious seafood. Following our fun vacation, I had bunion surgery and spent a lot of the summer recovering, relaxing, and reading. A couple of my favorite things to do are yoga and reading good books. I am looking forward to the best school year ahead!
