Originally from Waukesha, I have called the Coulee Region home for the past 25+ years. When I attended Winona State University (Elementary & Special Education), I fell in love with this area and never wanted to leave! My husband and I were married at Holy Trinity Catholic Church and live on the southside of La Crosse with our puppy, Button. In addition to teaching, I coach figure skating including the Coulee Region High School Figure Skating Team (affiliated with La Crosse Central) that has earned 4 statewide titles (2017-2020). Prior to Blessed Sacrament, I was a special education teacher for students in kindergarten through high school and a classroom teacher for grades 1-3. I am looking forward to continuing my teaching career here at Blessed Sacrament.
“Every child deserves a champion—an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be” (Rita Pierson).
In my classroom, we work on developing our growth mindset as I am child-center teacher who plans engaging and relevant lessons to challenge all learners. Students are expected to be "respectful and responsible as they act and speak from their calm peaceful heart".
Students are expected to read outside of school to grow their reading skills. During class time, we use the Lucy Calkins Reading Workshop curriculum as well as other activities to develop student word recognition, vocabulary, comprehension, and fluency.
