I am very excited to be back for another year at Cherry!

I was proudly born and raised on the Iron Range.  I grew up north of Nashwauk, and I attended the Nashwauk – Keewatin schools for my entire elementary/ high school career.  After graduation, I attended a multitude of colleges including Hibbing Community College (P.S.E.O., A.A. Degree, and C.N.A. Certificate), Hennepin Technical College (Carpentry Diploma), St. Scholastica (started my teaching degree), U.M.D. (B.A. Degree – Teaching Communication Arts and Literature and Educational Computing and Technology Certificate), and finally… Bemidji State University (Teaching Middle School Math Endorsement – eventually working toward a Master’s Degree). The running joke in my family is that I have enough years of school to have been a doctor. ;)

My family and I lived in Keewatin for almost ten years before we moved to our 52 acres of paradise on the outskirts of Hibbing. My husband’s name is Nathan; he works at Hibbing Taconite and has formerly served in the military as well as a police officer.  I have one son, Rieghley, who is eleven years old.  
We have a collie/sheltie mix named Koby and have a cat named Maurice.
