Professional Experience

I graduated from U.W. LaCrosse with a degree in Physical and Health education and then was hired by Swallow in 1990.  I then attended U.W. Milwaukee and earned my Elementary Education degree which allowed me to move into the 5th grade classroom.  I also hold a masters degree in Professional Development from U.W. LaCrosse.  

Personal Life

I love all things outdoors and active.  I spend my free time biking, running, hiking and cross country skiing.  When I am not outdoors I can be found reading a good historical fiction book or numerous nonfiction titles.  I have 2 kids who are growing up too fast.  Julia is entering her second year of college and Thomas will be a senior this school year. My husband is a teacher at Arrowhead in the math department.

  Welcome to fifth grade! I’ve been teaching since 1994. I began my career as an elementary Spanish teacher. I was hired at Swallow School in 2000, where I taught third grade for 17 years and then switched to fifth grade in 2017. I graduated from UW-Whitewater in 1994 with a major in Elementary Education, grades 1-9, and a Spanish minor. In 2002, I earned my Master's Degree in
Reading from UW-Whitewater. I have since taken courses through Viterbo University, and I earned my Reading Specialist license in 2013. I consider myself a life-long learner and truly value the opportunity for everyone to be inspired to learn.

I have two teenage children. I enjoy spending my free time being involved in their lives and activities, as well as reading, going for walks, and watching movies. I'm confident that you will agree; Swallow School is a great place to be!
