Shako Teacher

Welcome to Sweeney Fifth Grade!  We have a wonderful year of learning and fun ahead of us!  Please read the weekly emails and newsletters for specific information about the activities we will be doing in class. Don't hesitate to email or call me with specific questions/concerns!


Welcome to the Shakopee Art Department!

I was inspired to become an art teacher after working with my high school pottery teacher and discovering my love of clay and sharing it with others. I am excited to continue my mission of inspiring and motivating students to explore their creativity and to engage in life-long learning and creating. 

It is easiest to communicate with me via email; however if by phone works best for you, please call the school to leave a voicemail.

It is going to be a wonderful year in art class and I look forward to creating with you!


Welcome to my Science Class! 

I LOVE the subject of biology.  I am married and have two daughters.  Together, our family owns many pets from dogs to lizards to horses.  My affection for living things is what sparked my interest in science and what still keeps me excited about teaching these concepts today.
