Where do you live?

Sartell, MN

Why did you become a teacher?

I was lucky to have some amazing high school math teachers. They really helped me see how exciting math can be to learn. I wanted to pass this excitement on to the next generation!

I found BlueSky and felt instantly at home.

Why did you choose BlueSky?

I had the pleasure to teach for an online charter school while living in Utah. When I moved to Minnesota, I found BlueSky and felt instantly at home. The school uses Moodle, GeniusSIS, and Google Apps, and has an amazing faculty and staff. I'm so excited to be part of the team!

What do you think makes BlueSky special?

BlueSky Online School is special because it is run by a group of caring and deeply involved individuals. The school is built by the staff and faculty and each team member is here to work with students and families. BlueSky truly does offer individualized learning in an online setting.

What do you like to do when you're not teaching?

I enjoy running, skiing, yoga, hiking, reading, cooking, camping, crossword puzzles, traveling and spending time with my husband and daughter.

If there was one thing you could tell people about BlueSky, what would it be?

When you attend BlueSky you are not just a number, you are a student with a team of support cheering you on!
