Now in my ninth year of teaching, I am
currently the Title I Math Specialist at Lawrence Elementary in Canton, SD. This is my
first year teaching in Canton, and I couldn't be more excited to be back in my
hometown. Prior to this position, I taught for eight years at Gayville-Volin School in Gayville, SD. During my time at G-V, I taught first grade,
Title I reading and math, and coordinated the after school and summer program
during my first two years. I then taught 3rd-7th math for
five years and spent my final year in the sixth grade regular classroom. I
am very grateful to G-V and will miss all my friends and students dearly.
My education: I graduated from Canton High School in 2000.
Following high school, I attended Northwestern College in Orange City, IA, where
I received a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and an endorsement in
reading in May 2004. During my first year of teaching, I was a member of PDC
(Professional Development Center), which is a first-year teacher/Master's
program through the University of South Dakota. In August of 2006, I received a
Master's degree in TET (Technology in Education & Training) from USD.

My family: I was born and raised in Canton, SD, where my parents,
Marcia and Dave, still reside. I have an older brother Brad and a younger
sister Courtney. My brother lives in Sioux Falls with his wife Jill and
their daughter Brooklyn. My sister is currently living in NCY where she is
obtaining her master's degree in theatre.
My interests: When I'm not teaching
my awesome students or hanging out with family and friends, I enjoy the
arts: I can't live without music, and I'm a bit of an Internet junkie.
Other interests include baking--especially for my students!! I also love
the outdoors--summer is my favorite season, and I enjoy biking, hiking, and
traveling. My interests also include experimenting with
allowing me to explore my creativity and enhance my teaching.
