I have always been a learner, someone who loves to discover new things. This has been a driving factor in many parts of my life and it is also why I chose to become a teacher. I hope to instill that desire in my students, to help them discover one thing that they want to dig deeper and deeper in. My goal as a teacher is to help my students find that one interest that really opens their world to a life time of learning.
Before coming to Noble, I served with Minnesota Reading Corps working as an Elementary Literacy Tutor in the Minneapolis Public Schools. This experience gave me a great understanding of Literacy and the acqusition of Literary Skills. I am also someone who is very innovative. I enjoy the challenge of being given little and turning into something great.
I am a traveler. I love visiting a variety of places and really getting to know the essence of the place. I enjoy nature and being completely encompassed by nature. I love to hike, bike, kayak, camp, snowshoe and snowboard, mostly because those are things that are done outdoors. You will see elements of this in my teaching as I love encorporarting some of my passions into my lessons.
