About Me

I am a born and raised South Dakota girl with the accent to match. My family consists of my parents, two older brothers, myself, my little sister, and our two wonderful dogs, Pete and Ritz. I attended all my years of schooling at Scotland School District, Scotland, South Dakota. My hobbies are anything from outdoor recreation to baking our old family recipes.


Philosophy of Education

Inspired by my grandmother, who was a one-room schoolhouse teacher, I chose to become an English teacher during my senior year of high school. My experience at college reinforced my passions and enlightened me in the classics, religion, and language arts. I am grateful to have stumbled into the German program during that time also. Learning German gave me the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to both study in Berlin for 3 weeks, and live in Bavaria for a year. I owe it all my parents who instilled a spirited independence and insatiable curiosity in me. The moment we stop learning is the moment we stop living.
