I have taught in Minneapolis Public Schools for 5 years. I started my career in MPLS in 2009 at Lucy Laney. This is my first year at Bancroft elementary. My teaching career began in my home town, Toledo, OH. I taught there for 10 years. I graduated in 1999 with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from the University of Toledo. My teaching philosophy: All kids can learn! It is the responsibility of the teacher to find the right puzzles pieces for the learners so that the pieces fit together to make a beautiful picture!
