Last year I joined the staff in Hartford as a part time Title 1 teacher. I have taught for 29 years and 23 of them have been at West Central.

I graduated from West Central High School and received my Bachelor of Science Degree from Southwest Minnesota State University.

I met my husband Craig while attending college. We celebrated our 28th anniversary this past June. Craig is the Director of Sales and Marketing at Baker Boy.

In December of 2007 we traveled to China to adopt our daughter, Maya. She is 10 years old and very excited to be a fifth grader this year.

We also have two yellow labrador retrievers named Gage and Zeke and a Havanese puppy named Finley.

I enjoy reading, being outdoors, and spending time with Maya. I also enjoy running, cycling, and swimming. So, I've started the new challenge of participating in triathlons.

I look forward to a great school year working with students!
