I have been teaching at O.H. Anderson as a reading specialist for over 10 years and I am lucky to work with students and staff in all three grades. This year, I work with small groups of students all throughout the day for an extra dose of reading. I enjoy getting this more individualized time with the students and helping them succeed. I earned my bachelor's and master's degree from the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. I received my K-12 Reading Licensure from Hamline University.

The best way to contact me with questions and/or concerns is through e-mail.
However, if email is not the best option for you, please feel free to leave me a message on my voicemail.  My school number is 651-407-2329.
