I grew up in small town Zumbrota, MN and later attended Concordia College in Moorhead, MN, graduating with bachelor’s degrees in both Math Education and German. After receiving VDAC and Fulbright scholarships, I spent two years living in Kassel, Germany. While there, I took math education courses and worked in a German high school as an English teaching assistant. I incorporate best-practice teaching methods learned both in the US and Germany to fit the needs of all my students.
This is my 7th year teaching math at Southland. New this year, I am excited to offer Pre-Calculus content for college credit (College Algebra and Trigonometry Concurrent Enrollment courses through Riverland). I will also continue to be the advisor for the Southland chapter of Mu Alpha Theta, a national math honor society, in which students act as peer tutors during homeroom throughout the year.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband Isaac, our daughter Maria and dog Lucy.
