Why Whitewater?
During my time teaching students in Whitewater, I have encountered students of diverse backgrounds who have taught me how to be a better teacher. I have worked with teachers, staff, and administrators who have shared their expertise, wisdom, and friendship.
I feel lucky to to be able to do a job I love. As of the 2015 school year, I added traveling abroad with students. Our trip to Guatemala and Belize with 39 students was one of the most amazing experiences of my career and life. Since then, I added a trip to Spain with students in Spring of 2017. 

Before Whitewater
After growing up in Waunakee, WI, I graduated from UW-LaCrosse with a degree in Secondary Education in Spanish and Speech. Additionally, I earned my Masters in Education from Cardinal Stritch University. Throughout my teaching career, I have taught Spanish (all levels including middle school), Speech, and even taught English for the 21st Century and some ELL courses!

In addition to teaching at WHS, I advise Spanish Club, Lead Dogs. Co-advising the Senior Class, planning Homecoming activities, and the first day of school activities allow me to enjoy seeing students outside of the classroom as well. 

When not at WHS, I can be found spending time with my family, reading, scrapbooking, or playing games. But I especially enjoy traveling with my family anywhere, anytime we get a chance.
