I began my teaching career in the Bloomington Public Schools in the fall of 2002, spending the first 13 years of my Bloomington teaching career as a Physical Education teacher and coach at Jefferson High School before coming to Oak Grove Elementary at the start of the 2015-2016 school year. Prior to teaching in Bloomington, I was an elementary physical education teacher at the Breck School in Golden Valley from 2000-2002. I grew up in Bloomington and attended Holy Angels and the University of St. Thomas. In the spring of 2009 I earned my masters degree in Teaching and Learning from the University of St. Mary's. I look forward to getting to know all of the students at Oak Grove and sharing my joy of physical education and sports with them!
