My Role at BlueSky
English Teacher

How I Came to BlueSky
I had been searching for my dream job for a while. Teaching students who need the help, excellent coworkers, and a comfortable environment! SO happy to find it!

What Makes BlueSky Special to Me
We’re helping students of all abilities from all over Minnesota to grow, live happier, and reach their diploma dreams!

My Passions and Hobbies
If I love an author, I will read nearly everything that author has written! I love to read. I love to fish. Hard to do both at the same time! I also love to grow veggies, container fruits and flowers. I may blog, write poetry, and post instagram pics! My passion as a teacher is to appreciate and praise. I strive to grade student work with a short turnaround time.

My Most Memorable Experience at BlueSky
There are many memorable experiences with students, staff, and events. Open Houses are fun because you meet folks. Retreats are great because you get to know your coworkers better. I would say the team contest of making a boat out of cardboard and watching Dan O paddle it in the lake was pretty great!

Education
SMSU Southwest MN State University. BS.

I have also been a student at Concordia College in Moorhead, Ridgewater College, Willmar Campus, and done some Post Graduate work through Saint Cloud State University. The road through college isn’t always a straight path. I share this so others can know. You take the path, and the path takes you!

I’m excited to see more schooling opportunities are opening in vocational areas. We NEED rocket scientists, electricians, plumbers, mechanics, construction workers, pipe welders, and makers of all kinds!
