Assistant Teacher, M/W/F AM
It’s a joy to see the curiosity and creativity of young children as they explore the woods, streams, and play spots of Hartley Park. Their outdoor adventures remind me of my own childhood in rural Duluth and of my two children attending HNP. After my college education in biology and environmental studies and energy policy work in Washington and Minneapolis, my spouse and I returned to Duluth to raise our children closer to the forest and the big lake. I enjoy running on trails, cross-country skiing, reading science fiction, and learning about weather and ecology. At HNP, I am enthusiastic about supporting young children’s needs, interests, and imaginations through the Northland’s seasonal variety.
