I am from the Duluth, Minnesota area and have lived in Wisconsin for the past 19 years with my husband Dan, our four children Elizabeth, Timothy, Luke, and Benjamin, and our dog Amy.

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Early Childhood from the University of Wisconsin-Superior, and a Montessori teaching diploma from the North American Montessori Center. I have been teaching for eleven years. I taught in the Hayward School District for three years primarily teaching preschool. I have been teaching in Birchwood for the past eight years with my first three years being multi-age (Preschool - 6th grades) project based at the Birchwood Discovery School, and the last five years teaching Children's House at Birchwood Public Montessori.

I was drawn to Montessori because it is designed to respect the child, to allow children to learn at their own pace, and to be unique individuals. The Montessori philosophy, methods, and materials are designed to capture the child's interest and make learning fun!
