Welcome to kindergarten at Dover-Eyota Elementary School!  I am very excited to have the opportunity to teach your child and work with your family.  I hope we have a wonderful year together.

I have been teaching kindergarten for Dover-Eyota since January of 1998.  Previously, I taught kindergarten at Sunset Terrace Elementary School in Rochester.  I was also a substitute teacher for some of the surrounding school districts. 

I attended college at Winona State University.  I have a B.S. in elementary education with a kindergarten endorsement.  Since graduation I have continued taking additional course work.

I grew up in St. Charles and graduated from high school there.  I still live in St. Charles with my husband and two children.  We value and enjoy what a smaller community has to offer.

I have always enjoyed the rewards and challenges of teaching kindergarten.  My goal is for each child to learn as much as possible and have a lot of fun during our year together.  I love music, books, art and being active.  I try to bring all of these into our classroom to enhance our learning atmosphere.

I truly hope your child's year in kindergarten is one of the best.
