Hello and Welcome!
I am looking forward to the 2014-2015 School Year! I graduated from Minnesota State University, Mankato in December 2009 with a degree in Elementary Education. I recently completed my Learning Disabilities Licensure in May 2013. This will be my 5th year teaching at Hartley in Special Education.
I am originally from Iowa (Go Hawkeyes!), but now live in Waseca with my family. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Tyler, our son, Canon, and our 3 dogs, Mya, Nora, and Chloe. I enjoy reading, watching movies, and spending time outdoors.
I strive to help all children find success in the classroom. I believe that we all have the capabilties to reach every child, we just need to find what allows them to succeed! I try to make learning fun. I incorporate movement within my classroom with brain breaks and Smart activities. I am looking forward to incorporating technology in our classroom this year, to continue to engage students.
