    I am beyond excited and very eager to be the new FUSION teacher here at Goshen Post. This will be my 6th year here at GPE, but my 11th year as a teacher! I am originally from North Dakota, growing up in the lovely “metropolis” of Fargo. I attended the University of North Dakota where I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Special Education.

    Prior to becoming a Gator in LCPS, I was a teacher in FCPS. Throughout those years, I took courses to fulfill my Advanced Academic Program endorsement allowing me the opportunity to be the 5th grade full time level IV teacher and Level IV vertical team leader for 3 of those 5 years. I received specialized training in Project Based Learning, Teachers College, and took graduate courses at GMU focusing on conceptual understanding of mathematics and algebraic reasoning.

    In my spare time I like to shop, travel, listen to podcasts, and watch movies. My 3 year old daughter- Skylar, 1.5 month old son- Clay, and 90lbs Silver Lab named Beau keeps me VERY busy! My aspirations as a teacher are to see all of my students not only grow beyond their own expectations and goals but install a LOVE for learning that will forever be a part of who they are. I attempt to teach with passion and excitement while keeping rigor and high expectations so my students develop a desire to become life-long learners and high achievers.

    Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns via email.

    I look forward to what I know will be an amazing school year as the FUSION Gator teacher!
