Hello, thanks for visiting my web page.  Here is a top ten list that's all about me...

10.  I live in an "orange-themed" house with an orange dog, an "orange-ish" & white dog, and an orange cat.
9.  I have lived in Cannon Falls since 2001.  My family has been working its way back to Minnesota after starting in the Bemidji area, on to a stop in Michigan's UP for about a year and a half, then a ten year stay in Genoa, Wisconsin before moving to CF.  Our ultimate plan to to head back up north to the Bemidji area when we retire.
8.  Contrary to what #10 might make you think, my favorite color is purple.
7.  I love to read~check out the bookshelves in my classroom~there are more at home too!  My family is kind of crazy about books.
6.  I enjoy outdoor activities~walking, riding quads and snowmobiles, and fishing.
5.  I have a BS in Education from Bemidji State University and a Master's from the University of Wisconsin, LaCrosse.  I have used this to teach 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade, numerous long-term positions, substituted, and worked as a home-bound instructor.  I have an elementary and three middle school licenses.  Every now and then I get the bug to go back to school, we'll see where that takes me.
4.  I have an older brother and an older sister who are the same age for one day each year.
3.  I have two sons: TJ and Travis.  TJ is a photographer in Minneapolis who went to school in Turner's Falls, MA~he thought it was funny to go a town "named after us."  Travis is a sculptor who lived and worked in New York City and is in the Navy now.  It's pretty quiet around the house these days, so I really enjoy when I get to have them at home.
2.  I am married  to my husband, Todd.
1.  I want to make school be a learning, fun, educational, safe, and memorable experience.  I feel that I have a lot of knowledge to share.  I have an open door policy in my classroom, feel free to stop in any time!
