Welcome to 8th Grade ELA! I am so excited you're here!
I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little about myself. I graduated in 2010 from Winona State University with a BA in Communications and Marketing. I spent two years after graduating in sales, which I quickly realized was not for me. After having my son Braxton in 2013 I decided it was the perfect time to go back to school to pursue a new career in teaching. I received my teaching license from Cardinal Stritch University in 2015 and began my teaching career at Luther Elementary as a 5th grade teacher. I then went on to receive my Masters of Education in 2018. This year will be my 5th year of teaching 8th grade Language Arts here at FAMS - and every year keeps getting better!
My husband Brandon and I have 5 kids in our very blended family. Sienna is our oldest at 11, Austyn is 10, Briggs is 8, Braxton is 7 and Hudson is 1. We also have two rescue dogs, Leia and Millie who are both 8 years old. As a family, we love to be outside any chance we get - whether that be swimming in the summer or sledding in the winter! My own hobbies include; coffee, reading, exercising and playing volleyball.
In this strange time of uncertainty, there is one thing that is certain and that is; I am beyond excited to have you in my class this year... whether that be in person or virtually. I am looking forward to a year full of learning, discovery and fun!
