Primary & Elementary School


It is my privilege to serve the students and families of the ZM School District!  As a special education teacher in the Zumbrota-Mazeppa School District, I will have the opportunity to serve students in the 7-12 Middle School/High School who are eligible for special education services.  I look forward to the challenges of improving student learning using a growth mindset.  Helping students make positive gains and achieve success is my primary objective and one of my biggest passions.  I've spent 12 years working in special education teacher in Goodhue County before returning to the Cougar Den in 2016 as I graduated from Z-M in 1994!!  Additionally, I serve as 8th grade boys basketball coach and Student Government Adviser.

On a personal note, I enjoy playing sports, playing with kids, reading, watching movies and hiking.  I have three incredible kids:  Alaina, Ansley and Vincent, who all attend Z-M Schools.
