• I was born and raised in Frankfort, Illinois. Both of my late parents were teachers, so I guess you could say that I have gone into the family business.
     
    I hold bachelor's degrees in Speech Communication and Elementary Education and a Master's Degree in Instructional Technology.
     
    I taught for four years in Illinois, then one year in Anoka before coming to Kimberly lane. This year will be my 23rd year of teaching!
     
    In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, reading, walking and hiking, quilting, and gardening. My favorite places to spend time, other than Minnesota, are the Tetons, Cancun, and Walt Disney World.
