I have been a special education teacher at Achieve since the Fall of 2019. I graduated from The University of Minnesota with a B.S. in Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences in 2007. I spent several years working as a preschool teacher and in childcare, which eventually led to me becoming a special education paraprofessional. I had found my calling, and went back to school to get my teaching license in Special Education: Specific Learning Disabilities. I am currently working towards a master's degree in special education. Outside of school, I enjoy reading, photography, and spending time with my husband and our two daughters.
