I am a teacher in the Edina Public Schools in Edina, Minnesota. I currently teach third grade in the French Immersion program. I have been working in this school district since 2000. Prior to teaching in Edina, I taught at the International School of Minnesota in Eden Prairie, Minnesota as well as in Cairo, Egypt, Kuwait and in Paris, France. I have a Master of Education from St. Catherine University and a certificate in Language Immersion Education from the University of Minnesota. I am a member of the Edina Tech Cohort and will have earned a certificate in Educational Technology in July 2011.
