I am so excited to be a part of the KoMets community this year!  I am originally from Lakeville, MN.  I grew up with one younger brother, and spent most of my time playing sports such as hockey, lacrosse, and swimming. In addition, I played the bassoon in youth orchestras.  I graduated with my undergraduate degree in Elementary education with middle school endorsements in both science and mathematics form Saint Mary's University of Minnesota in Winona.  For the past two years, I've been teaching 6th, 7th, and 8th grade science up on the Iron Range in Eveleth-Gilbert.  When I am not teaching, I spend my time taking long walks with my welsh corgi named Gomer, quilting, reading, and debating the science in science fiction movies.
