I am in my third year of teaching at Roosevelt High School, and am currently working with 9th grade students. I grew up in Eden Prairie and moved to Minneapolis after attending college at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. I am a strong believer that the teacher's role is to facilitate learning and encourage my students to view everyone (including me) as learners in the classroom.

My classroom works to integrate all aspects of language development through reading, writing, speaking, listening, research, and media literacy. My classes participate in an artist residency every year with my partner artist, Keegan Xavi. By giving students options and a variety of experiences throughout the year, my hope is that all students are able to find something that inspires them and motivates them. It is so fun to see students grow and learn about their own passions and interests as the year goes on!

If you ever have any questions or interest in volunteering some ideas/connections, please feel free to contact me by e-mail at
