Degrees and Certifications:
This is my twelth year teaching middle school. I started my career in the Burlington Area School District. In 2014 my husband and I moved to Fort Atkinson with our children and I began teaching at FAMS. I enjoy being a part of the community, gardening, traveling with my family and working as an advisor to the FAMS Robotics Club.
My goal as an educator is to instill the love of lifelong learning by preparing and exposing students to standards to meet future learning expectations. I teach with perseverance and tenacity; therefore, I set rigorous goals with my students and assist them in meeting those goals by creatively teaching them how to utilize learning tools in the learning environment. I believe students should be inspired and given opportunities to problem solve and think critically about the world around them through authentic experiences where they can discover new knowledge, collaborate with peers, and strengthen independence in the educational setting. Instruction in this classroom is tailored to meet the needs, aspirations, cultural backgrounds, abilities, and interests of my students.
As the school year progresses, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have. It takes all of us; parents, students, and staff members to collaborate to build a strong educational foundation that fosters social and academic success in our students.
