Welcome and thank you for visiting my webpage. I'm very excited about being your 7th grade social studies teacher. Please log in to Schoology to access class topics, assignments, and due date, I plan on updating my page at least once a week. Please keep in mind that I will try to follow the plan on the web page, but there may be times when we have to divert from the plan to best need the needs of my students.
This is my twentieth year of teaching (sixteenth in Social Studies and four in Language Arts) all of which have taken place in the School District of Menomonee Falls.
I earned my bachelor's degree in elementary education with a minor in English from Carroll College (now Carroll University) in May of 1997.
