Welcome! I am thrilled to be your child’s 5th-grade teacher.  I grew up here in Casselton, ND. I loved being a part of this community which is a huge reason why I am back here now! I graduated from VCSU in 2008 with a double major in Elementary Education and Physical Education. I taught 5th grade reading for a year in Omaha, Nebraska, before realizing that town was way too big. After that, I taught Title 1 and Physical Education in Kenmare, ND for 3 years, and then on to Velva, ND for 6 years where I also taught 5th grade and was the head volleyball and assistant softball coach. This will be my third year teaching 5th grade in Casselton. I coach JH volleyball and I am an assistant coach for the state champion softball team! 

I am married to Joe and we have 3 children: Tenley (8), Hadley (5), Bailey (3) who keep us both on our toes and busy with all kinds of activities. We enjoy spending time at our lake, soaking up the sunshine or doing our best to replicate what Chip and Joanna are doing... demolition, Target and all!
