About Our Teachers
I am an Agriculture Teacher and FFA Advisor. I graduated from Worthington High School and received by Bachelor’s Degree in Agricultural Education from South Dakota State University. I previously have taught at Hills-Beaver Creek Secondary School and Mountain Lake High School. In my agriculture classes, I aim to create a student-driven learning environment while exploring the vast career opportunities that agriculture offers. Crazy enough, I am teaching in the same classrooms my dad taught in for 17 years when he was an Agriculture teacher here at the high school!
I have taught Ag 10, Ag 11, Ag 12, Small Animals, Wildlife Forestry, Intro to Wildlife/Forestry, Floriculture, Advanced Floral Design, Exploratory Ag 8.
I have a Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Minnesota and a Master of Education from the University of Minnesota.
I started teaching in District 518 in 1999.
I believe in the importance of agriculture and enjoy the personality of students.
I grew up on a family farm located by Ocheyedan, Iowa. We raised corn and soybeans and also produced cattle and hogs. I graduated from Iowa State University in 2013 with a degree in Agricultural Education and Agricultural Studies. I started teaching for District 518 in 2014.
I really enjoy being able to work with students on such important agricultural topics
I have taught Power Technology, Home Survival Guide, Ag Economics, Ag 9, Ag 10, Ag 11, Ag 12, Metals Manufacturing and Welding.
I have my A.S. in Agriculture from Minnesota West Community and Technical College and my B.S. in Agriculture Education from South Dakota State University. I am also a graduate of Worthington High School. I began teaching at Worthington High School in 2012.
I enjoy working with students and sharing a passion for agriculture with them.
