Welcome! I'm looking forward to working with students at Andersen Elementary.

My Education and Professional Background

I received my BS in Elementary Education from Eastern Montana College, and MS in Special Education from Montana State University-Billings. In 2011, I was honored to receive the Montana Special Education Teacher of the Year award.

My Educational Philosophy

It's interesting to me that many of our salient memories involve our grade school years. People can always remember their favorite teacher. For me, that teacher was Sr. Abby. I adored this woman for so many reasons, and to this day, I strive to emulate her teaching. My philosophy of education is based on what I learned from my 2nd grade teacher: 1) She genuinely loved us. We just "knew" it by the way she treated us. 2) She taught me that being fair meant that everyone received what they needed in order to be successful. 3) Sr. Abby had expectations for everyone and taught us to have high expectations of ourselves. 4) She was creative and engaging. I was always ready for more! Sr. Abby helped mold my teaching career and her influence carries over to the students I work with today!
