Welcome to Willow Creek! This is an exciting year in the life of your child. It is a year of transition from elementary to middle school; from childhood to adolescence. I'm honored to be a part of that process. This is my fifth year at Willow Creek Intermediate School. I currently work in Maple House with Mr. Woodrich, Mrs. Hansen and Mrs. Stringfield. Previously, I taught Special Education at McKinley Elementary for four years and Owatonna Junior High for seven years. Before that, I was part of the Special Education Staff in the NRHEG School District. My passions lie in helping my students learn their personal strengths and how to use those strengths to build upon those areas needing improvement. Not only does our special education department work on academics but social, emotional and behavioral needs, as well. I invite you to call or email at any time with questions or concerns.
