I am excited to be teaching in Bloomington, MN, especially at Washburn Elementary. I have been teaching at Washburn Elementary since 2014. Over the years, I have taught kindergarten, second and third grades. I started my teaching career in Boise, Idaho in 2008. I moved to Minneapolis the summer of 2014 and have loved it ever since. I graduated with my Bachelor's degree in Education from Boise State University and completed my Masters of Education with an emphasis in Literacy. My passion in life is teaching and learning. I enjoy taking classes to better my knowledge and understanding of teaching. My goal each year is helping students meet their full potential. In my free time, I enjoy being outside camping, hiking, biking, walking the lakes, and traveling. I also enjoy crafting, and playing trivia and bingo with my friends. I have recently competed in my first triathlon, which took a lot of hard work and dedication. I am excited to continue working hard and setting new goals for myself. I look forward to meeting my new students and families each year. Here's to a great year!
