A little bit about me!  I was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and spent my childhood in suburban Milwaukee. After graduating in 1984 from Winona State with a B.A. Fine Arts degree, I moved to Minneapolis to become a graphic artist.  My favorite job as a graphic designer was for a company that designed and built museum exhibits all over the world, even in Bermuda. You can see some of my work at Minnesota State Parks, (Fort Snelling, Nerstand Woods, Gooseberry Falls).

I love living close to the city lakes where I spend time running, walking, biking, skiing or just hanging out at my favorite beach. 

I have two daughters, who were born in Guatemala but are now officially adults. In 2021, my beautiful grandson was born. He is the love of my life.  

I have been teaching in Minneapolis Public Schools for 17 years and this is my eighth year at South High School. Also,  I taught for six years at Pillsbury Community School.  We had a biking program where I was able to help coach kids in biking. We rode all around Northeast Minneapolis and even rode to Stillwater, 28 miles.  I am hoping to do biking with my students here at South someday.
