I have taught at Wellstone since 2012. I went to Pennsylvania State University for my undergraduate studies and Hamline University and St. Mary's University for my graduate work. Before teaching at Wellstone, I taught ESL and Reading at Henry High School and also worked as a Literacy Coach at the elementary school level. I have active teaching licenses in ESL, Reading, and Special Education. I love teaching at Wellstone because our students and staff are so wonderful to work with! I look forward to coming here everyday!

What do jigsaw puzzles have to do with writing skills? At first, you might be thinking "Absolutely nothing!" But our class is working on building a community. Research shows that students learn better when they work together and have a chance to help each other.
Here are a few pictures of our class "puzzlers". They did a great job of asking questions, helping each other, and working together. They will use these same skills when they help each other to revise and edit their writing.
This syllabus tells you what you will learn this year, our classroom expections, the grading scale, and how to get extra help when you need it.
I live in Minneapolis with my husband, our daughter, our dog, Pete, and our new kitten, Otis. We like to spend lots of time together. We like to ride bikes, we try to catch big fish, and we cook lots of good food together. This is a picture from the Summer of 2014.
