I joined the MTS Elementary in 2011 as a paraprofessional. Prior to working in a elementary education, I was a preschool teacher at Child Garden Montessori for five years. I hold a B.A. in Theatre Performance from Butler University and in the evenings I pursue my career as an actor/dancer/singer. I have been on the dance faculty of The Children’s Theatre, Zenon, Young Dance and continue my seven year affiliation with The Lundstrum Center for the Performing Arts.

My first connection with MTS was as a parent in the fall of 1996. The elementary and middle schools were located a block from my house and I was eager for my 6th grade son to attend a new school. He was an MTS student for 3 years and he received excellent attention from his teachers and a lot of small group instruction.

In the fall of 1998, I was hired on as the kindergarten teacher and taught Kindergarten for 4 years. I have continued to teach at MTS and am serving as a Title One teacher. After becoming a licensed reading specialist through Hamline University, I am trained to work with students in all aspects of their reading development.

The most rewarding part of my job is getting to know our children and families. Each year, the Title One staff plans 3 family events. This year we have hosted a “Reading Extravaganza Carnival,” and a “Parent Valentine’s Day Breakfast.” We are looking forward to our student, “Spring Portfolio Night.” Occasionally, I get to see my first year kindergarten students who are now young adults. Many of their nieces, nephews, siblings and cousins are now attending MTS elementary!

This is my first year as a teacher and I am very excited to begin my teaching career at MTS Elementary as the first grade teacher. I recently received my B.A. in Elementary Education and Spanish from the University of St. Thomas. I spent this past spring student teaching in a kindergarten and 2nd grade classroom, and spent the year before that studying abroad in both Ecuador and Spain to learn Spanish. I live in Uptown Minneapolis and in my free time I like to spend time with friends, travel, and go running or biking.
