Welcome to kindergarten at Dover-Eyota Elementary School! I am very excited to have the opportunity to teach your child and work with your family. I hope we have a wonderful year together.
I have been teaching kindergarten for Dover-Eyota since January of 1998. Previously, I taught kindergarten at Sunset Terrace Elementary School in Rochester. I was also a substitute teacher for some of the surrounding school districts.
I attended college at Winona State University. I have a B.S. in elementary education with a kindergarten endorsement. Since graduation I have continued taking additional course work.
I grew up in St. Charles and graduated from high school there. I still live in St. Charles with my husband and two children. We value and enjoy what a smaller community has to offer.
I have always enjoyed the rewards and challenges of teaching kindergarten. My goal is for each child to learn as much as possible and have a lot of fun during our year together. I love music, books, art and being active. I try to bring all of these into our classroom to enhance our learning atmosphere.
I truly hope your child's year in kindergarten is one of the best.
