My love for the arts and athletics started early on in my childhood and continue to be a large part of my life today. I earned my undergrad from Bemidji State University while playing soccer for the Beavers. Eager to start my teaching career, I moved to Austin MN where I taught for three years. This year I will teach students ways to explore their creativity as they draw, paint, design and collaborate in Visual Arts and Stagecraft. I will also help students identify the importance of physical activity in PE and on the field while coaching our athletes.
