Welcome to Eagan High School!
Welcome to Eagan High School. I love working here! This year, I am teaching students who are Learning Disabled, have Other Health Disabilities, are Autistic or Developmentally Delayed. I enjoy discovering student personalities and encouraging students to acquire adult life and social skills. I graduated from Gustavus Adolphus College in 1983, married in 1986 and have four children (2 girls and 2 boys) who are now grown. I returned to school (College of St. Catherine) in 1999 to obtain Elementary Education (K-8) Licensure. I have always been interested in the field of Autism, so I obtained Learning Disability Licensure and completed the Autism Spectrum Certificate (now a degree in 2013) from the University of St. Thomas in 2005. I then taught students with mild Autism at the middle school level for two years. I also taught students with mild Autism for three years at the elementary level while pursuing a Learning Disability master's degree through Minnesota State University-Mankato. In the fall of 2009, I began working with 18-21 year old students at the Pathway Program/Transition Plus in District 196 and completed Developmental Disability Licensure in the spring of 2011. I began teaching at Eagan High School in the fall of 2011 and I love it! This is my 12th year of special education teaching. When I am not in the classroom, I enjoy selling tickets at many of the sporting events here at Eagan High School. I love the joys and challenges of working with my students!
