Hello and Welcome to third grade!

I joined the staff at Somerset Elementary in 2012 and am so happy to be a part of the third grade team.  I started my journey as an educator when I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.  The beginning of my career in education led me to every elementary and middle school in La Crosse (and every grade level in my certification, 1-9!), as a district substitute.  In 2010, I started a new adventure as a second grade teacher in Rice Lake, Wisconsin, where I became certified in the Literacy Collaborative model of the balanced literacy framework.  This specialized training ignited my spark for helping students achieve their highest goals as young readers and writers.  

Beyond teaching, I love to go camping, travel and cheer for the Green Bay Packers!  I have lived in four different states and two different countries (Scotland and Costa Rica) while studying abroad.  I love photography, reading wonderful books and I belong to a book club with some of my neighbors.  I live in Southwest Minneapolis and love to try local restaurants and also new recipes at home.  I am thrilled to be a part of this exciting, ever changing profession and look forward to getting to know all of my classroom families each year!
