Teacher: Room 105
I am new to Lake Harriet United Methodist Preschool this year and am thrilled to be your child’s teacher. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in English and philosophy from Coe College, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. After college, I spent three years abroad teaching English in Thailand and Japan. When my husband and I returned Minneapolis, I obtained my Master of Social Work degree from the University of Minnesota. My family relocated for five years for my husband to study law at the University of Chicago, after which we returned to Minneapolis to raise our two sons, Henry (11) and Jack (6). We live across from Lake Nokomis and enjoy bike rides to local parks. In my free time, I enjoy baking cookies, camping, and reading—on the weekends, you might catch me working behind the desk at Hennepin County Library.
Please don’t hesitate to communicate with me as we progress through the year together. I can be reached at or via cell at (612) 226-0188.
