I am so excited to be part of the 1st grade team at Hickory Ridge Elementary! I am looking forward to a year of learning, fun, and adventure. I can't wait to get to know all of you, but first I'll tell you a little about me.

I have a husband, 2 sons, and a dog. I was born in Minnesota, and after college moved to Phoenix to teach 1st grade. I lived in Phoenix for 9 years, where I also earned my Master's Degree in Reading Instruction. I moved to Nevada and taught 1st grade for 4 years, then moved to Florida and taught 2nd grade for 2 years. I'm so happy to be back in my favorite grade, and I know we're going to have a great year together!
