I graduated from Boyden-Hull High School and Northwestern College, with degrees in Social Science, Elementary Education and an endorsement in Early Childhood Education. I taught three years of Kindergarten at Granville Spalding and six years of Transitional Kindergarten for Remsen-Union. In 1998 I began teaching Transitional Kindergarten at Orange City Elementary School.
Life Outside Orange City Elementary
I'm married to Craig, who is the purchasing manager at Diamond-Vogel Paints. We have three children, Juliana, Colin, and Carter. As a family we like to "hang-out" together, play games, take walks, read books, eat pizza and spend Saturdays at home. In the fall we watch a lot of football, wearing Viking's purple (although sometimes we wonder why). We are also avid Minnesota Twins fans. I enjoy a good movie, a large mall, a scrumptious piece of chocolate, and a spontanious trip out for ice-cream.
