I have been teaching at Waconia Wildcat Preschool 20+ years. Preschool is a fun place to play, read stories, learn about ourselves and others, be a great friend, dance and sing, and learn to love school. I live in St. Bonifacius with my family. I have two daughters, one son, and my husband is a teacher as well. We like to play games together, go camping, play outdoors, read books, and travel across the United States on our summer vacation.
I live in St. Bonifacius with my family. I have three boys, which means we spend a lot of time at the hockey arena or baseball fields. I've been Ms. Mary's assistant for over 10 years. I am fortunate to have met many wonderful families in our community through Waconia Wildcat Preschool. The best part of my job is watching my preschool friends grow and make new friends.
I graduated from the University of St. Thomas in May 2019 with a degree in Elementary Education. I started my teaching career by subbing in different age groups and fell in love with preschool. Their curiosity and excitement for school fuels my passion for teaching. I live in Waconia with my boyfriend and our mini goldendoodle, Koa. When I am not at school, I am either doing yoga, trying out new coffee shops, or walking Koa by the lake.
I have been working as a Waconia Wildcat teaching assistant for 9 years. My favorite thing about working at Waconia Wildcat Preschool is getting to know the families and watching the children grow academically and socially. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family. I am married and have five girls, who keep me very busy.
I am blessed to be living here in this wonderful community my whole life. I have enjoyed working with this amazing program since 2002. It is fun to be a part of the children’s growth and development from year to year. I am married and we have two sons. When I am not at school I am usually outside exploring nature.
