I Graduated from AHS in 1974. I Attended MSU from 1974 to 1978, graduating in June of 1978 with a BA in Elementary Education.
I began teaching in Anaconda in 1989. I finished my first MA Degree in Mental Health Counseling in 1994 from MSU. I finished a second MA Degree in Curriculum and Instruction in 1996 from the U of M. During my 30 years of working in the Anaconda Schools I have taught students of every grade level except for the eighth grade. Most recently I worked at the High School as a counselor for 6 years and after working as a 4th and 5th grade Teacher at Lincoln School for 3 years I was counselor there for 4 years and currently I am a counselor at FMIS (past 3 years).
