Professionally, I like to think of myself as well rounded and prepared. Though I started at the university in a mass communications program, intending to go into journalism, life took me in another direction, but journalism served me well in college as editor of a number of campus publications and as a job after college. I still love it. Coming back to teach at THS is interesting. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education from Concordia University, Nebraska. I majored in Speech and Theatre Arts, and I majored in English. I lived and taught in New York City and Pennsylvania before returning to Minnesota. In Minnesota, I finished my Master of Arts in Education.

I also attended St. Mary's University and received my Principal's Certificate and my Superintendent' Certificate. Among my work in Minnesota was eight years at Madelia Public Schools as a grant writer/manager and six years at St. James Lutheran of Northrop as principal and teacher. I also taught freshman composition as a TA at the University of Minnesota, Mankato. 


Personally, I am happy to be living near so many of my family. My husband Al and I loved our homestead and our Rottweilers. Since, Albert's passing last spring, I have adopted two cats to keep the Rotti company while I am at work. I enjoy all aspects of the outdoors and try to keep active. I write poetry and sometimes short stories for my own entertainment. Though many years ago I had a few things published, I don't pursue it.
