Welcome to 1st Grade at Sun Path! I am so excited to be here! This is my first year teaching at Sun Path, before that I taught 1st grade and 2nd grade at WestWood Elementary in Prior Lake, MN. Prior to that, I subbed in the Prior Lake-Savage School District for 7 years while going back to school to get my elementary licensure from St. Mary's University of Minnesota. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities, although I spent my first 2 years of college as a music major at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa.
I grew up in Shakopee and have family members who still live in Shakopee. I currently live in Prior Lake with my husband Dan, our daughter Erin who is a freshman at Loyola University Chicago, and our son Connor who is a sophomore at Prior Lake High School. We also have a little dog named Cocoa.
My favorite thing about teaching first graders is watching them learn and grow so much! The joy in their faces, their enthusiam for school and learning, and watching them learn is priceless! I look forward to a fantastic year!
