About Me

I was born and raised right here in the amazing community of Gettysburg. I attended South Dakota State University and earned my Bachelor’s degree in Family and Consumer Sciences, with minors in Consumer Affairs and Human Development. I then attended the University of Sioux Falls and received my Master of Education degree with an emphasis on School Leadership. I have also earned certification In English Language Arts and as a K-12 Principal. I teach 7th grade English, a variety of Family and Consumer Sciences classes, and advise the FCCLA (Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America) chapter, which is a student-led leadership organization. My goal as a teacher and mentor to my students is to help them become motivated, successful, productive members of society. I love interacting with my students every day, and watching them grow over the course of the year.

My husband, Andy, and I live in town with our three daughters. Neva and Olivia are in the 5th grade, and Isabelle is a 2nd grader this year. I love being outside, traveling, and spending time with my family.

I follow the grading scale listed in the handbook.
