Welcome to your child’s classroom for the upcoming school year!  I hope you and your child are as excited as I am to begin our learning adventure together!  I believe our year will be filled with creating wonderful memories of learning, engaging activities, imaginative projects, making new friends, and much more! 

This is my 27th year of teaching, and my 15th year at Delano. In my many years of teaching,  I have been a Gifted and Talented teacher, a 5th grade teacher, and a 4th grade teacher.  I feel very fortunate to be part of such an excellent school system here in Delano.

My husband, Jason, and I have two children.  Megan is a high school English teacher in Fulda, MN, who completed her Master’s last December. Ben graduated last April with a Construction Engineering degree from the University of Mary in Bismarck, ND. He is returning to campus this fall to complete his business degree. We live in Delano just a few miles from where my husband and I both grew up with two dogs (Elli and Charlie), an abandoned cow - turned family pet - named GiGi, her calf, Georgie, and a herd of beef cattle.

Some of my hobbies include spending time with my family (very rare these days), reading (or listening to books!), antiquing, remodeling Meg’s house, cooking, playing games, and watching sports. I love gardening in the summer and spend as much time outdoors as possible before the Minnesota winters hit!

I look forward to an amazing year getting to know your child and learning everything we can in 4th grade.  It will be a year of many changes and great opportunities for your child as we embark on our journey as a 4th grade class at Delano Intermediate School!
