Hello, Ramsey families! I teach 6th, 7th and 8th grade STEM and am excited to start my third year here at Ramsey! I am also one of four STEM Integration Teacher Leaders this year working in partnership with the University of Minnesota to weave STEM into the Ramsey core curriculum and culture. I've been in Minneapolis Public Schools several times throughout the years. First, as a student- I am a Washburn High School graduate and, many years later, I started my teaching career at Patrick Henry High School in North Minneapolis. My licensure is in 5-8 General Science and 9-12 Life Science.
My first two years of college I was an art major but somewhere along the way I discovered the art in science and changed course. I love talking with students about the connection between art and science and how engineering is one of the many places we get to see the two come together. I received a BS in Biology from Francis Marion University in South Carolina and a MA in secondary science education from Hamline University in St. Paul. I was at Fridley Middle School for several years where I taught 6-8 STEM courses (Project Lead the Way), 7th grade Life Science, and 8th grade Earth Science. I held a one-year sabbatical cover position at Breck School in Golden Valley in 8th grade Earth Science where I also coached the middle school FIRST Robotics team. Prior to teaching middle school I worked in an Immunology research lab at the University of Minnesota and spent many many years before that working with toddlers and pre-schoolers!
I live in Roseville with my husband, Rob, and our children, Oscar (a sophomore at Mounds View High School), Ella (a sophomore at the University of Minnesota-TC) and Yuki (our lazy Shiba Inu). I love coffee, camping, hanging out with my telescope, drive-in movies, and going out to see live music performances. I'm especially fond of the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra.
This year I am in the building teaching STEM on B Days and can be reached by email any day of the week. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have!
