I enjoy teaching at loyola because I have the opportunity to help foster life-long relationships with God in my students by living out my faith and challenging my students to be moral decision-makers.

I have always had a passion to work with children. This passion  led me to get a degree in Elementary Education, which I received from The College of Saint Catherine in 2004.  Shortly after graduation and acquiring my Minnesota teaching license,  I began my first year teaching at  St. Michael’s School in the fall of 2005.  After my second year my husband and I decided to move closer to family and I was fortunate to find  a teaching position here at Loyola Catholic School in 2007.

Since coming into the Loyola family I have had the pleasure of teaching a variety of subjects and grade levels including 4th grade math, 5th grade reading, 6th grade religion, 6-8th grade art, and 4-9th grade computer.  I  challenge my students to increase their skills and knowledge , to independently demonstrate what they have learned, to explain the strategies they use and to support their ideas with references from text and other sources.  In addition to teaching I have the joy of working as the technology integration specialist.

I currently live in Mankato with my husband David and daughter Elsa.  Outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my family, finding a good coupon deal, going on adventures, and taking and editing pictures.
