Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Valley View Middle School!
I am excited to be teaching middle school for the 6th year! I've taught Media Literacy and Reading to 6th, 7th and 8th grade students, so I've gained many resources to use with students. At Valley View I teach 6th grade EF Reading and 6th & 7th grade Literacy Skills.
In 2003 I graduated with a degree in Elementary Education and minor in Special Education from Southwest Minnesota State University in Marshall, MN. I completed my K-12 Reading Specialist License in 2007. After graduating I taught middle school reading, Media Literacy, and Technology Integration classes.
This summer I enjoyed spending time on Lake Minnetonka paddle boarding and fishing. I don't recommend using an inflatable paddle board on a windy day. It was much more difficult getting back to shore!
I'm looking forward to the 2015-2016 school year! If you ever have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me.
