This is my wonderful family! My sister Jessica is 26, who is married to Angelo. They both live in Chicago, IL. My sister April is 35, is Josh. They live in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. My mom, Rose, and my dad, Jeff, who live in Woodbury. My brother Paul and his wife Jill, have my two beautiful nieces Evalyn (2) and Sydney (8). They live in Mankato, MN. Joey is my 14-year-old orange tabby cat. He is really lazy and cuddly. Steven is my boyfriend, who is also a 3rd grade teacher. He works in Faribault public schools. In my spare time I love to hang out with them all. I also love to play volleyball, go horseback riding, and watch movies snuggled up in a blanket (I'm always cold). I'm a caribou coffee fanatic! I worked there for 6 years before becoming a teacher! I'm also a pizza lover and chocoholic. Hastings is my hometown, and I am so excited to be back working for the very school that inspired me to be the teacher I am today.
