Brief backgound:
I was born and raised in Winona, Minnesota. I hold degrees fromBethany Lutheran College, Mankato, Minnesota and the Univ. of Minnesota @ Winona. I started teaching in Lewiston, Minnesota, September of 1962 at the age of 19.
I married fellow teacher, Rich, in June of 1972. We were blessed with two sons, Jonathan (Janel) 31, and Christian, 29.
Schools I have taught at in Wisconsin include Christ Memorial, Walther Memorial, Northwest and Zion. I have taught grades K-8 and various combined classrooms. I am beginning my 39th year of ministry to the church at large.  I have given piano lessons for 45 years, with 35 students this year.

Reading, music, knitting, time with family and friends
Interests: books, piano, art, children, baseball, organ, accordian, dogs.

What I enjoy about working with children:
"I enjoy watching how children learn, their absolute honesty, the strong faith they have in their Savior, their eagerness to find out about the world, their ability to absorb information.
I love "opening the door" for them, teaching them to observe by introducing them to famous authors, illustrators and artists. I especially take joy in teaching them the basics of reading, so that they may eventually read everything, including the Bible, for themselves."

Favorite Bible verses:
Jeremiah 29:11,13 "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord... plans to give you hope and a future...You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."
John 10:27-28 (confirmation verse)
"My sheep hear My voice and I know them and they follow Me.  I give them eternal life and they shall never perish, neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand."

Words of Wisdom:
All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen.

One voice can make a song,
One voice can change the world!
