The 2020-2021 school year is my 16th year teaching and my 13th year teaching in Bloomington. I attended Bloomington Public Schools from K-12th grades and got licensed to teach ESL K-12 and elementary education K-6 after graduating from Iowa State University. In 2011 I completed a Masters Degree in Education with an emphasis on Differentiated Instruction from Concordia University. I have been fortunate to have a variety of experiences teaching ESL, including all grades K-adults, as well as teaching in a bilingual school.
