I grew up on my family farm 25 miles out of La Crosse. My siblings and I are alumni of the Aquinas Catholic School system. I attended Kindergarten through 6th grade at Blessed Sacrament Elementary. Then moved on to Aquinas Middle School and High School. I enjoy working with children of all ages. I began working at Blessed Sacrament my freshman year of college as an aftercare teacher were I worked for six years. I began my teaching career at Blessed Sacrament. Where I taught 5th and 6th grade reading for one year and 5th and 6th grade science for two years. I then moved to Cathedral to teach 4 Year Old Kindergarten.
I strive to use multiple teaching strategies to differentiate instruction with the objectives of keeping students engaged and energized in their learning process. Above all, creating a student-centered respectful classroom that is developmentally appropriate, as well as celebrates differences and individualism is my ultimate goal. I strongly believe this is supported by addressing all parts of the individual Childs; cognitive, social, and physical domains.
