I came to Grace in 2014 with five years of classroom experience.  I enjoy seeing and encouraging my students to think critically, to gain independence and responsibility, and to learn from other students by working together.  4th grade is truly a "Florida Experience" since much of the Social Studies, Science, and Literature curriculum is devoted to the study of Florida's rich history and exciting future. I believe learning is fun when we explore together and discover new ideas. 

I attended college in St. Paul, Minnesota at Concordia University earning an Elementary Education degree with a Middle Level Math Specialty, a Lutheran Confessional Minor and a Music Minor. In my spare time I love being outdoors in God's creation as I hike, camp, fish and ski.  Music is also one of my joys in life and I love to use my gifts to praise God in worship and song.
