I was born and raised in a small town in beautiful Minnesota. After I graduated from college with a major in Elementary Education and a minor in Special Education I took a leap of faith and excepted a teaching position and moved to California. The plan was to stay for one year however, my short stay has now been a surprising 28 years.
My husband and I met in Palmdale, CA on a softball team. We have three wonderful daughters. Our oldest is a background investigator and is in the Air Force Reserves. Our middle daughter attends UC Davis and our youngest daughter is in middle school in the Rocklin Unified School District system.
I have been teaching for 26 years. While living in California I have taught special education, third, second, and first grades, transitional kindergarten and kindergarten. Our family moved to Rocklin from the Bay Area 10 years ago. We were pulled to Holy Cross Lutheran Church where we decided to become members. I have been teaching at Holy Cross Lutheran Academy for 8 years. I enjoy running with our chocolate lab, gardening and yard work, and laughing with our girls.
