I was born in St. Paul and I am a product of Catholic Education.  I attended grade school at St. Peter's, high school at Hill Murray and I received my B.A. in Elementary Education from the College of St. Benedict.   

I have taught first grade for 18 years at St. John the Baptist School.  I taught here from 1990 - 1995.  Then I stayed home for five years to be  with my two sons, Matthew and Luke.  After coming back to teach at SJB, I had a little girl, Ali.  It is my 13th year back and I am just as excited for this school year as I was my first year of teaching!
