Welcome to the Waite Park Media Center

I have been a part of Minneapolis Public Schools since I was 5 years old! That's right, I went to Webster Open School from kindergarten through 8th grade, then graduated from South High School, and I have been teaching since 2003. I have been teaching media in Minneapolis schools, mostly on the Northside, since 2007.

I live really close to Waite Park with my kids and husband and 5 chickens and 1 cat and LOTS of dandelions and other flowers. When I'm not teaching I'm gardening or knitting or playing with my family (and animals).

I also LOVE to read, and always have a stack of books by my bedside. Some of the best books I've read this year were The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate and The Night Circus.
Let me know if you are having a hard time finding a book to read, chances are pretty good I can help you find something you will enjoy!
