I am a 2009 graduate of Minnesota State University Moorhead. This is my sixth year as a first grade teacher here at Roosevelt. My husband, Jason, and I live in Hawley and we have two kids, Adley (2) and Colton was born in September. When I am not at school I love to spend time at the lake with my family, be active indoors and out, and I also enjoy reading. I truly love teaching first grade! I incorporate literature and art into many of my lessons. It is a treat to watch my first graders grow and become independent each day. We learn so many new things in first grade and get to have fun doing it!
