I am so blessed to be assigned as third and fourth grade teacher at Cross of Glory! My husband Josh and I are looking forward to meeting everyone at the church and school. Josh has been assigned to teach Choir and Band at Arizona Lutheran Academy. The two of us have been married for almost a year, and we are moving from New Ulm, MN, where I just completed my last year at Martin Luther College and graduated with a double major in Elementary Education and Instrumental Music Education. This past year I student taught in fifth grade at St. John Lutheran in Redwood Falls, MN as well as kindergarten at Springfield Elementary School in Springfield, MN. I completed my music student teaching in grades 5-8 at GFW Middle School in Fairfax, MN and in grades 5-12 at Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School in Jackson, WI. I am excited to use those experiences to give my students a quality Christian education this year. In my spare time, I enjoy playing oboe and piano, exercising, playing board games, and watching TV and movies.
