Teacher Room 105
Dear students, parents, and families,
I am thrilled to be your child’s teacher at Lake Harriet United Methodist Preschool this year. I’ve been an early child educator for six years, and this is my third year teaching at Lake Harriet. 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 (14) and Jack (8). We live across from Lake Nokomis and enjoy swimming and kayaking, bike rides to local parks, and picnicking. In my free time, I enjoy baking cookies, camping, and reading.
Please don’t hesitate to communicate with me as we progress through the year together. I can be reached via brightweel or email
