Hello! I am the director for Kids Crossing Early Learning Center. I am married to my husband, Joel. We are both teachers who graduated from Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN. When we are not at school we like to be active and enjoy God's beautiful creation!

My teaching philosophy:
To give students the tools and foundations needed to stimulate a love for learning and growing, as well as showing students my love and the love Jesus has for them. 

My favorite Bible verse:
Psalm 23:2-3 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name's sake.

Why consider Holy Cross Early Childhood Center:
Kids Crossing is unique because we're committed to providing affordable, high quality care and learning based on Christian values. We believe children thrive best in an atmosphere of Christian love, care, trust and respect.
