I grew up in the Central Wisconsin area and attended college at the University of Wisconsin, La Crosse. I received my Bachelor of Science in Art Education with an emphasis in printmaking. After graduation, I taught K-8 at Stratford Elementary for two years and then K-5 art in Baraboo, WI for another two. After deciding to move back to the Central Wisconsin area, luck would have it there was an opening back in Stratford where I've been ever since!
The value of education is something that I have understood since a very young age. My parents made a commitment early in my life to do everything within their power to instill in me a love of learning and an understanding of the importance of hard work and dedication. I use this passion every day and want to continue to grow and evolve as a teacher. The arts are such an integral part of the development of every person.
