Hello! This is my 22nd year teaching at Lakeside School. I have taught
3rd and 5th grade in this district. One interesting fact is I attended
Lakeside School for grades 4th-6th grade.
My husband's name is Peter. We have 3 children, Annika who will be a
Freshman at the High School. Thomas is entering 7th Grade at the Middle
School. We have Haley who will be in Ms. Hitchcock's 3rd Grade class here at
I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls with a Bachelor's of
Science in Elementary Education. I earned my Masters in Education from the
University of Minnesota.
I enjoy golfing, reading, walking, and spending time with my family. We have
no pets because I am allergic to animals with hair. We live in Lindstrom,
close to the golf course and lake. I also love to be outside when the
weather is nice!
A few favorites from the summer, getting out on the golf course more! My son
Thomas easily beats me most rounds. I am getting better! I went with Annika
and our church out to Custer, SD to a Atlantic Mountain Bible Camp in the
Black Hills. We hiked about 40 miles all week while managing without
electricity or running water. An amazing and awesome experience. We did go
to Cragun's Resort in Brainerd for our 8th year with the entire Overgaard Clan
including the Pauley family(Mrs. Pauley). For me...it was a bum year since I
sprained my ankle an hour into our vacation up there! At least I was able to
I look forward to working with each of you this year. We have a challenging
job preparing you for Middle School. With hard work and demonstrating
Lakeside PRIDE you will be ready for that transition next year!
