Subjects Taught
3rd Grade


I began my teaching career many years ago. I graduated from UW Eau Claire with my Bachelor’s Degree. I earned my Master’s Degree from UW La Crosse. My first class at Williams Bay Elementary was a split class of fourth and fifth graders. I then taught fourth grade for several years. I currently teach third grade.

At an early age I dreamed of being a teacher. I come from a family rich in teachers and nurses. It was during my Internship that I realized I wanted to teach third grade. After thirteen years of teaching, I was offered a third grade classroom.

My husband and I were both born and raised on dairy farms in northern Wisconsin. We have raised three children. My passion is working with children. I feel so grateful to wake up each morning and do what I love each day. I also love being outdoors, mowing lawn, gardening, bike riding, and spending time with family.
