My classroom is room 135, one of Sanford's Read 180 labs. This year I will be supporting students on Team Inquiry.  I co-teach Math 6 with Mrs. Benhardus.  I teach Read 180 and System 44, a structured reading and phonics program to assist students with reading and writing skills.


I have worked for the Minneapolis Public Schools since spring of 1997. I started my career in Massachusetts as a Montessori Elementary teacher before moving to Minnesota.  My first job in Minneapolis Public Schools was at Edison High School serving students with Austim Spectrum Disorders for 7 years, and continued at South High in the Austim Spectrum Disorders program for 3 years.  I worked for 8 years supporting Austim Spectrum Disorders teachers as a District Program Facilitator for middle and high school teachers, before joining Sanford Middle School in the fall of 2015.
