I am excited to be at Capitol Hill as the Technology Integration Specialist and teacher of the Maker Space for grades 3-5. This will be my 28th year of teaching in Saint Paul. I am a National Board Certified Teacher (1995-present), Common Sense EdTech Mentor and former PBS Digital Innovator.
I am married and have two adult daughters, Kellen and Devin. My husband Dennis and I are the owners of Once Upon A Crime Bookstore in Minneapolis (where we live). I spend my free time walking my dog around lakes, travelling, reading, and curling. Winter is my favorite season as I enjoy any activity on snow or ice.
