I earned my bachelor’s degree in ESL Education K-12 from the University of Northwestern, St. Paul.
This is my 4th year teaching with Noble Academy. This year I am working with 5th and 6th grade English Language Learners.
Reason for becoming a Teacher:
Ever since I was a young girl, I dreamed of being a teacher. In high school, I had my first cross-cultural experience of traveling to Mexico with my church. Later, I got to interact with other cultures in Alaska, Thailand and China. I realized that helping students from different cultures to learn English was my passion in life.
Interesting Facts and Hobbies:
My husband and I live in North Minneapolis with our son who just turned one. We love to go biking and walking on the parkway. We like to travel, and spend time with family and friends. My favorites are going out for Thai food, getting coffee, doing arts and crafts, and baking muffins. I’ve traveled to China, Thailand, Mexico, and Belize. I’m hoping my next traveling adventure will be back to somewhere in Asia.
