I will also be available for questions throughout the day, but it may be some time before I respond depending on other meetings, etc.


I am in my 24nd year teaching in the Wausau School District.  I have been part of the staff at Horace Mann for 24 years, as well as spending some of my early years teaching some elementary physical education.  I recieved my degree in Exercise and Sports Science from UW-LaCrosse in 1996, and earned my master's degree in teacher leadership a few years later.  Along with my teaching, I have spent many years coaching a variety of sports at both the middle school and high school level.  My coaching experiences include middle school soccer, baskeball, and track as well as high school boys and girls soccer.  I was fortunate enough to be the head coach of the Wausau East girl's soccer team for 5 years(Go Lumberjacks!!)


After stepping away from coaching, my focus has turned towards helping teachers to create active classrooms.   There is overwhelming research that shows the connection between physical activity and learning, and I want to spread that knowledge as far as I can.  I have become a certified Action Based Learning instructor, am a Core 4+ presenter, and am a Let's Move-Active Schools Physical Activity Leader(PAL) Trainer.  I am a member of SHAPE America and a  lifetime member of WHPE(Wisconsin Health & Physical Education Teachers).
