It is wonderful to be back at Lanesboro Public Schools. I graduated from Lanesboro in 1997 and went on to attend Winona State University. My major was K-12 Visual Arts. I graduated with honors in 2002. I did a little long-term subbing and a year in Austin, MN, but took a break from teaching. I worked for 10 years with Home and Community Options providing care and educational programing to children and adults with disabilities. From there, I became a stay at home mom. I helped my parents with the farm and became the market manager for the Lanesboro Farmers Market. With a 2 and 1/2 acre garden, I had some produce to sell!
My husband, Andy, and I have five children: Robert (19), Aiden (16), Rowan (15), Gwenevere (12), and Maddox (9). Needless to say, we have a busy house! Luckily, we live with my parents on the farm I grew up on near Pilot Mound. We have plenty of space! We are currently reimagining the farm and are in middle of converting our barn to have indoor grow space for year-round mushroom cultivation. We have cultivated mushrooms outside right now as well. I a, also certified to collect and sell 10 varieties of wild mushrooms from our property.
I am glad to be teaching in Lanesboro. I love this community and the people. If you need to contact me, my e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. The selections to the left highlight the different classes I have for this year. I will try to update photos as often as possible or just keep adding. It is going to be a great year!
