I am a recent graduate of Minnesota State Univeristy, Mankato with my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education with a specialty in pre-primary education. This means that I am licensed to teach from age 3 through the 6th grade.
I grew up in Minnesota. My mom was raised in Harpers Ferry, Iowa and I spent my weekends at my grandparents' house and in their convenient store. My dad was born in California but raised in Lansing, Iowa where his parents were originally from.
I have two Yorkshire Terriers who are like my kids. Jack is about 2 years old and Madden is 9 months old. They are my terror duo and boys to the heart.
I enjoy relaxing on the couch with my pups during the winter (as it is usually too cold for them outside since they are both 5 pounds or under). But during the end of spring, summer, and through the fall, I enjoy being outside with the boys and hiking with them.
