Hello! I am excited to be returning to the Whittier community as a licensed teacher. I worked as a resident teacher at Whittier last year through the Minneapolis Residency Program, earning my Masters in Elementary Education through the University of Minnesota. I co-taught in a fourth grade classroom for part of the year, as well as a third grade class. It is nice to be starting as a first year teacher in a place that is familiar to me and offers such great support. Whittier is the host site for the Minneapolis Residency Program this year, so I am excited to follow along with the program and offer insight and support as some one that has been through the program.
Prior to this experience, I earned my undergraduate degree in Chemistry through Concordia College – Moorhead. I then served two years as an Americorps member. I tutored elementary students in reading. I also tutored middle school students identified as long term English learners in Minneapolis. My favorite subject to learn about is science, and I look forward to including this in my teaching. Third grade is such a fun year, and I’m excited be to be working with energetic and excited students. In my spare time I enjoy living in the uptown community, taking advantage of the great outdoor recreation area in this neighborhood.
