Welcome to High 5 at Jenny Lind!


I am honored and overjoyed to learn with High 5 students this year! High 5 is an exciting year full of positive relationship building, meaningful explorations, and joyful learning as a respectful classroom community.  


From instruction to classroom materials, I am intentional to ensure that the decisions I make are developmentally appropriate, meaningful, and will best support each student. The Early Childhood Indicators of Progress, which reflect research-based best practice, are used to inform High 5 curriculum.


At the University of Minnesota, I received a bachelor's and master’s degree in Early Childhood Education. I grew up in Milwaukee, but I have called Minneapolis home since 2014! In my free time, I love to be outside- hiking, biking, running. I also love to cook, read, practice yoga, and spend time with my family and friends!


I value each student and their families. I believe that home to school communication and connections are crucial to student success. Please do not hesitate to stop by, call, or email me with any comments, questions, or concerns. 


I’m looking forward to a wonderful year of working and learning together!
