• 2017-2018 School Year

    Hello Minneota Students, Families, and Viking Fans!

    I want to welcome each of you to my language arts classroom.  This will be my 29th year of teaching, and I am so happy to be back in Minneota!  I live with my husband on the family farm outside of Marshall, and we have five children and ten grandchildren.  As an English teacher, of course I LOVE to read, but I also love spending time with my family, exercising, and watching all types of sports.  

    My philosophy for learning is that each student is unique and important and learns through a variety of ways.  One of my most important jobs as a teacher is helping my students to discover their strengths and working alongside of them to develop their full potential.  I feel it is highly important that each student feels welcome in my room each and every day and enjoys coming to class.

    This year is especially important for 7th graders as they enter their first year of high school, and I am going to work very hard to make this a positive and memorable learning experience.   

    Again, I am so happy to have each of these students in my classroom.  We are going to have an awesome learning experience from beginning to end!
