Happy New School Year!

I am the Speech and Language Pathologist at Northside Elementary School. My caseload includes students from birth-fourth grade.

The state of Minnesota has specific guidelines to qualify for any special education program, including speech/language therapy. If a child under three years of age qualifies for any services, my colleagues (OT & ECSE teacher) and I usually visit the child in their home or daycare. At the age of three, children attend services at Northside School, either during Headstart class time or another Early Childhood class program.

I am originally from North Dakota, but have now lived in Minnesota more years than my former home state! I began my teaching career in Benson, but then I decided to do the toughest yet most rewarding job on the planet-stay at home to raise my three children. When my children were school age, I began teaching at the LQPV and Minnewaska school districts before returning to Benson Schools.

If I have any free time (!!!), I enjoy spending time at Lake Scandi with my family and friends.

I can be reached at or at 842-2717, extension 4104.
