Hi and thank you for visiting our Room 9 Smartie website (by clicking on the link below)! I have been teaching kindergarten here at Poplar Bridge since 2001, and I can't wait to spend an awesome year collaborating with you to create the best kindergarten experience for your child! I hope that you visit often for news, important dates and events, pictures, and other great stuff!
A little bit about me...I received my bachelor's degree in elementary education from Bemidji State University and my master's degree in early childhood education from Concordia University in St. Paul. My husband Billy and I live in Bloomington with our two kids - Carter and Amelia. My favorite color is pink, and my favorite season is summer. I LOVE baseball and enjoy baking. If I could eat noodles every day, I would be very happy. When I'm not in school, you can find me reading, watching movies, snuggling with our dog Molly, and watching my kids' sports and activities. I look forward to getting to know your child and all of his/her favorite things!
Kindergarten is such a special year, and I look forward to spending it with your family! Please feel free to connect with me at any time!
