I teach 1st grade in the elementary school. I have taught in the La Crescent Public School system since 2005. I taught Special Education in the Middle School and High School for eleven years. Before that, I taught at Crucifixion Elementary School for fifteen years and also Lewiston. I grew up in Caledonia, MN in a family of six children. I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Kindergarten-sixth grade elementary from Winona State University. I earned my Master's Degree in Special Education grades K-12 from the University of Wisconsin LaCrosse. I recently received certification in Autism through the State of Minnesota. I live with my husband, Greg, in La Crescent. We have three grown children. Abigayle fights wildfires in the US, Tim works for a Laboratory in Minneapolis, and Brandon works for my husband at Wieser Precast in Stewartville, MN. My husband and I like to camp, boat, fish, and golf.
