I am a graduate of St. Cloud State University with a degree in Communication Arts and Literature and a minor in Special Education. I have worked with students from all walks of life for over seven years and I enjoy every facet of my job.
As a teacher of English Language Arts, I pride myself on encouraging students to dive deeper into reading and writing. I believe that the real meaning of a text is rarely on the surface and the ability discover that and understand it is a book's greatest gift to it's reader.
My hobbies include spending time with my husband, David, and our dog, Livia, harassing our cats, Egon and Murphy, camping, hiking, and traveling. I also enjoy reading anything I can get my hands on while enjoying a cup of tea or coffee.
