Welcome!

I have been teaching for 6 years, all of which have been in public schools in Southeastern Wisconsin. I began my career teaching 2nd grade in the district's enrichment program for students identified as "gifted and talented". Due to a change in the program, and subsequent budget cuts I have been assigned to teach 4th, 6th, and 8th grade. Last semester I had the opportunity to work as a K-5 math coach and am currently in my first week of teaching 1st grade!

I have been married for 4 years and have two daughters, ages 2 and 1. We enjoy disc golfing, fishing, and take many trips to local zoos as a family.

This is my second semester in the MET program at Boise State. I wanted to enroll in this program to find new ways to engage students, to give students an opportunity to take ownership in their education beyond the classroom walls, and to provide a variety of ways for students to share and improve upon their work with classmates and family.
