Teacher

I joined the preschool staff of St. Mary of the Lake in 1999. I hold a B.S. In Vocal Music Education (K-12)from the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse and love the opportunity to sing and dance with the children! I have a passion for working with young children and cherish the energy, creativity and curiosity they bring to each day. Sharing and nurturing the love of God with these little ones continually renews my own faith.
Outside of school, I enjoy reading, running (usually with my dog!), teaching water exercise classes at the White Bear Area YMCA and traveling with my family.

Teacher

I hold a B.A. in Theater with a Spanish and Linguistics emphasis from Macalester College, a Master’s in Education and a MN teaching license from St. Catherine University, and a certificate in teaching ESL from the University of St. Thomas.
One approach to teaching a language may not work for everyone, so I use recognized curriculum ( Viva el español series and Realidades series) TPRS (Total Physical Response Storytelling), skits, listening and response exercises featuring native Spanish speakers, readings from Spanish books and on-line writings, and integrated lessons in Social Studies, Math, Art and Science.

In my spare time I teach with my family for the Minnesota Institute for Talented Youth (MITY), and the STEPS STEM program for girls at St. Thomas University. I also run a Spanish summer camp for students in grades 2-8. I enjoy spending time with my family and our dogs, ethnic cooking, and working out, especially ZUMBA and Latin Dance.

I love getting to know the students as the unique individuals they are, and the thrill of the “ah-ha!” moment students have when they make new connections with the learning.

It has been a blessing and a pleasure to be teacher at St. Mary of the Lake School since my graduation in 1974 from the College of Saint Benedict with a major in elementary education and a French minor. During my years as a teacher at St. Mary’s I have guided many students, including my own three children and some children of former students, through their third grade year. Now I am very excited to be a part of the new Frassati Catholic Academy where I can continue to share my passion for learning about this beautiful life God has given to us. A few of the good things in my own life are my faith, family, friends, reading, cooking, gardening, walking, and of course, my students and their families.

I received my BA degree at Bethel University in St. Paul MN, major in History/minor in math. Upon graduation I wanted to see the world so I became a flight attendant and flew for five years. I went back to school to earn teaching licensure in 2005 through the College of St. Scholastica. Currently, I am licensed K-6 and middle school Math. I had taught middle school math for six years at St. Croix Preparatory Academy in Stillwater; 5th grade through Algebra II. I have three children enrolled at Frassati Catholic Academy for the fall of 2014. With three kids in hockey, I can often be seen at one of the White Bear hockey arenas. I run year round and am usually training for a 10 or 12K. I live for summers and enjoy anything outside. I enjoy the eagerness middle school kids have to explore their independence and their courage to try new things.

Teacher

I received my degree in English and secondary education from Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, Indiana. I hold a state of Minnesota 5-12 language arts and communications license. In addition to teaching, I am currently enrolled in a master of arts in English program at the University of Saint Thomas, and I look forward to using what I learn in this program to add breadth and depth to my instruction in the classroom.

I like working with middle school students as they grow emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually. I believe that this age group is passionate and energetic, and I find their written work and contributions to discussion insightful and renewing.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, running, reading, and working on my own writing.
