I have taught at St. John’s School for 17 years. My academic degrees include a Master’s degree in religious education and a teaching certificate from the University of St. Thomas. I also hold an associate’s degree from the University of Minnesota in animal health and have spent time working in a food science laboratory, testing animal food products, earning a wastewater license, and conducting the wastewater testing for Ralston Purina in Hager City, WI.
My husband and I live on our family farm near Red Wing. We are active parishioners at St. Joseph’s Church. We grow and preserve a large portion of the food we eat. Our farm is also the home to horses, a dog, cats, ducks, pigs, chickens, and black angus cattle. I bring my love for animals into the classroom, which is currently the home of two leopard geckos.
When I’m not busy in the classroom or on the farm, I spend time with my grandchildren, who live on an adjacent farm. As a mother and grandmother, I fully understand the transition to all-day school for our kindergarten students.
