Where do you live?

West Saint Paul, MN

What is your role in keeping BlueSky running smoothly?

I teach Tenth Grade English in both My Pace and Group Pace settings.

The people and the connections you can make here make it unique for an online institution.

Why did you choose BlueSky?

I wanted to fulfill my passion for teaching and guiding students but needed someplace where I still had the flexibility to be the primary caregiver for my two sons, Sebastian and Malcolm. BlueSky allows me to do that.

What do you think makes BlueSky special?

I've been very impressed with how welcoming both staff and students have been. I'd definitely say that the people and the connections you can make here make it unique for an online institution.

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

I play with my two sons, watch baseball (go Twins!), read, and play video games.
