I earned my undergraduate degree from UW-Madison in sociology and began working as a research supervisor for a marketing communications firm in the Milwaukee area. After two years of designing and implementing research projects I decided to go back to school to become a teacher, earning my teaching license from UW-Milwaukee.
I worked as a classroom teacher in Milwaukee Public Schools for 13 years. The majority of my 13 years was spent in kindergarten and first grade classrooms. I experienced a number of changes over the years, including the transition to the common core, standards based grading and educator effectiveness. After this challenging and fulfilling experience, I decided enroll in Concordia’s Education Administration program and pursue my School Business Administrator license.
I am now in my second year as the Director of Business Services for the Campbellsport School District. It has been an exciting and rewarding time as I have had the opportunity to assist teachers, administrators and community members in their efforts to help our students progress and develop toward becoming productive and engaged members of society.
I have been teaching for Concordia since January of 2015 and have enjoyed being able to connect with aspiring administrators in my role as an instructor.
