A bit about me...

I began my teaching career in Chisago City, MN. I taught preschoolers with developmental delays for one year. I was then hired as a kindergarten teacher in Grand Meadow. I taught kindergarten for 25 years, 1st grade for one year, and 4th grade for 3 years. I also taught art one year while teaching kindergarten part-time. This will be the third year for me as a technology integrationist. 

I am a Grand Meadow High School graduate. I received my teaching degree from Concordia University in St. Paul. I also received my master's degree in Differentiated Instruction from Concordia. I am a Guided Math trainer and love working with technology. I took a sabbatical during the 2015-2016 school to take classes in technology integration and help my daughter with her new twins and 2-year old. I received a graduate level certificate in Technology Integration from Boise State University in Idaho. 

I am married to Curt who is a supervisor for DFO Corrections. We have three children. Kelli is a first grade teacher in Cumberland, WI. She and her husband Eric have three children--Severin, Tess, and Lee. Craig works as a software engineer for a start-up company called Primer in San Francisco, CA. Eric is also a software engineer for Airbnb in San Francisco. I enjoy traveling to Wisconsin and California to see my children and grandchildren!
