My experience teaching for 10 years in the White Bear Lake school district gave me a passion to see all students succeed at the highest level. I am proud that ISD 199 has a strong Career Pathways Program, which offers high school students opportunities to gain real world experience in a variety of fields. I believe this will help students hone their interests and plan for future learning opportunities.

I am also proud that our district is offering rigorous coursework to all students at IGHMS. As a board member, I will evaluate our policies to ensure that they are in line with student success and continue to be a voice advocating for strong academics for our students.
