- 4th Grade
I was born and raised in Lindsborg, Kansas (little Sweden USA). As a child, I always loved reading and learning, so becoming a teacher was always a passion of mine. In 1999, I graduated from Wartburg College in Waverly, IA and started my career teaching 5th grade for 2 years. I then moved to the middle school setting and taught 6th grade ELA for 4 years in Salina, KS. After meeting and marrying my husband, Jess, I moved to Longmont, CO where I taught 3rd grade at Loma Linda through 2008. I have taught 4th grade at BMES since 2009. In December 2021, I graduated with my Master’s Degree in Culturally Linguistic & Diverse Education. When I’m not studying and teaching, I absolutely love spending time with my beloved family: Jess, Nora (9), and Gwen (14), reading, practicing yoga, and anything outdoors.
