When I was in seventh grade, my English teacher told me I should become a teacher and started me on my journey to teaching communications at the Area Learning Center. A three and one-half week cultural and language immersion experience in France gave me a better understanding of what it is like for our students who come here knowing very little English.
Except for when I was in college, I have lived in Nobles County, and during that time I taught at Adrian, Brewster, and Round Lake before teaching at Worthington. I graduated from Worthington High School and earned degrees at Worthington Community and Technical College and Minnesota State University, Mankato. I did most of my graduate work at Minnesota State University, Mankato and the University of Iowa.
Outside of the school setting, I enjoy writing, photography, reading, needlework, sewing and quilting, gardening, preserving and researching history, and working with steam engines at the Western Minnesota Steam Threshers Reunion in Rollag, Minnesota.
