Substitute Teacher & Extended Day Play!
Greetings Preschool Families,
I am honored to be joining the Lake Harriet Preschool team as your extended day teacher! I am a licensed K-6 teacher with a bachelor of science degree in Elementary Education, an early childhood emphasis and a STEM certification. I am very familiar with Lake Harriet preschool because not only did my daughter attend, but I was also a long term substitute teacher in 2020. I also previously taught Kindergarten.
I live in South Minneapolis with my husband, Ryan, who is also a teacher, our daughter, Carol, who is 7, and our dog, Hank. In my free time I love traveling, exploring, hiking and playing outside with my family and friends.
I am so excited to get to know all the families at Lake Harriet Preschool by exploring, learning, and having fun with the kiddos in the extended day program this year! Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns through Brightwheel or email me at
