I consider teaching my encore career. Prior to teaching, I owned my own business for twenty years. This is my fifth year at Ridgewood and previously I taught two years in Wilder, Idaho. I have four children of my own, all of whom have Bachelor’s Degrees from the University of Wisconsin and three of them have earned their Masters Degree. I have always been involved in my children’s activities, including coaching sports and scouting. I love watching children learn and prosper in a safe, caring, community oriented environment. I am committed to keeping in touch with you throughout the year as you are the most important people in your child’s life.
