After graduating from the College of Saint Benedict, I began my teaching career in Minnesota. I taught first grade until I moved to Oak Park when I married. Teaching has been in my blood since I was a young girl and set up a “summer school program” in my backyard for the neighborhood children. I had the privilege to be the first 3 year old pre-school teacher at Ascension when the program began in 1982.
I became a stay-at-home mom when our first child was born. Our three children are graduates of Ascension School. After many years of subbing at Ascension, I began teaching 3rd grade. It is a joy to work with 8-9 year olds and guide them as they journey through the school year. I hope my students continue to look at life with curiosity and excitement.
My curriculum is Language Arts which includes: spelling, grammar, reading, writing, and cursive. I want my students to develop these lifelong skills that are so necessary to becoming a successful student. I am so lucky to be working at Ascension and co-teaching with Beth White.
