I currently live in Golden Valley, MN. I have a younger brother and sister who are both currently in college. In my free time I love to be active, especially outside. You can more than likely find me fishing or hunting or training CrossFit when I am not in the classroom. I am also a huge Minnesota sports fan!

What do you like most about BA?
I love being able to be in school everyday and getting to see all of my students. The small class sizes are great for building a strong learning community and allowing me to better support individual students.

Why did you get into education?
I have always had a passion for working with children. For as long as I can remember I wanted to be a teacher.

What teacher that you had made a big impact on your life and why?
My fifth grade teacher made the biggest impact on me because she was the first teacher that I could tell really believed in me. I hope that I can have a similar impact on my students.

What is your best advice for students at BA?
You need to believe in yourself and choose to be great each day!

What are your credentials and teaching experience?
This is my first year teaching my own classroom of students. Before this year I was a student at the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire and student taught in Wisconsin.
