• I am looking forward to getting to know you this school year! The 2020-2021 school year marks my thirteenth year of teaching and my eighth year as a teacher for Maple River Public Schools. I will be teaching tenth-grade Human Geography, eleventh-grade Intro to Economics, and twelfth-grade U.S. Government. My goals for Social Studies are to guide students as they improve their social studies content knowledge, build their historical thinking skills, and increase their awareness of our local, national and global communities. My classes will include a variety of teaching methods including activities, discussions, lectures, projects, formative/summative assessments, the incorporation of online/Chromebook technologies, and more.

    I am very excited to be a part of the Maple River community and am looking forward to a great year.

    Please feel free to contact me if you have any comments, questions, or concerns.
