Striving for Instructional Excellence

It is pleasure to be a 20-year veteran educator in this wonderful Minneapolis community. After spending 17 years in the classroom teaching, my career took a leadership turn.  In the fall of 2013 I came to Lucy Laney. Currently, I am the Pre-K through Middle Grades Instructional Specialist. While not in a classroom with 4 walls, I remain passionate about teaching children and offering them a safe place to take risks, be themselves and reach their highest potential both socially and academically.

As an Instructional Specialist on site, I have the privilege of working closely with exceptional and dedicated teachers. My work focuses on Best Practice teaching implementation in all classrooms.

Supporting the teachers is my new “calling”.

At Laney we are very much part of a professional family. I look to my peers and administration to support the work we are charged to do. We work as a team for YOUR children.

On a personal note, I was born and raised in Bloomington, MN. That is where I am now also raising my 2 sons (12 and 8) with my husband of 14 years. We enjoy cabin/camping together. The boys love boating and water sports. We have a dog, cat and guinea pig!

Balancing and blending my professional and personal life is a priority. It is with diligence and perseverance that we will all find peace, love and hope!
