Hello preschool families! This is my second year teaching in the Mounds View School District and this will be my fifth year teaching.


I currently teach two 4-5 School Readiness classes and one Side-by-Side 3's class at Pike Lake Education Center. I love teaching preschool students because I feel they have such an excitement for learning. I love to hear their thoughts and ideas and watch them grow throughout the school year.


I live in Blaine with my husband and our cat. In my spare time, I enjoy baking, running, yoga, reading, and spending time with friends and family.
