I am originally from Slayton, MN where I graduated from MCC High School. I attended Iowa Lakes Community College for 2 years and was part of the Volleyball and Basketball teams there. I graduated with an Associates Degree and transferred to SMSU in Marshall to continue my teaching degree. I graduated from SMSU with a Bachelors Degree in Health and Physical Education, as well as Minors in Adapted Physical Education and Coaching. I previously taught 7-12 Health and Physical Education at Round Lake-Brewster High School before accepting my teaching position at Truman. I started teaching K-12 Health and Physical Education in Truman during the Fall of 2013. I am currently teaching Health Education classes, as well as Truman's Activities Director and K-12 Dean of Students.

    I will be available by special appointments if needed to help with anything that comes up. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have. I am more than happy to help in any way that I can. Just remember: We are ALL learning together.


Contact Information:

I am available via my email, private message through Google Classroom, or by telephone. I will continue to update the best means to reach me as we move forward.


Attendance/Student Expectations:

Attendance is mandatory at all levels. I am expecting an honest policy as we move forward on this journey. 


High School- You need to be signed into google classroom/or google meet by 10:45 every TUESDAY AND THURSDAY to take our daily attendance, before any instruction or activity is to begin. We have 30 minutes each day scheduled for our instruction time, and 15 minutes for work time, so please be prepared with everything you will need and ready to participate/engage to get as much accomplished as possible in our time together. 


Accessibility of Instruction/Coursework:


        High School- All of the materials/instruction will be listed in our google classroom or in google meet. Students need their email address in order to access this: (lastnamefirstname@truman.k12.mn.us) example: andersonkayla@truman.k12.mn.us- THIS IS NOT MY EMAIL, just an example of the students emails. There will be an invitation to join on google meet 5 minutes before each scheduled day that we have class to take attendance and daily announcements before we begin our daily instructions/activity.

Parents: 

I will be in contact periodically throughout this journey. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. We will each have to set expectations for this distance learning, and ultimately, your student and I are going to be responsible for how much is learned and his/her success. Your support, as always, is greatly appreciated!
