This is my sixth full year at Trinity First (seven with student teaching), and every year I've had the opportunity to do something a bit different! This year, I am working with volunteers, serving as Director of our Tiger Club afterschool program, doing HR duties, updating the website, playing piano for our choir, as well as a few other duties. This is my third year outside of the classroom. Before that, I student taught in Kindergarten, taught first grade for one year, and fifth grade for two years. I have learned so much about serving Christ and His kingdom, as well as what it means to be a follower of Jesus, through the staff and families here.
I graduated from Concordia University, St. Paul with a degree in elementary (K-6) education and a middle school (5-8) emphasis in Math with a minor in Confessional Lutheranism and Urban Education. I've been married to my husband for 3 years, and we just had our first baby at the end of May! We enjoy spending time with friends and family, hosting game nights at our house, and music. I am looking forward to working from home this year so I can also spend quality time with our son.
I find great joy in sharing Christ's sacrificial love and never-ending grace with the people around me, particularly the community in and around Trinity First. What a privilege it is to serve our Savior!
