What do you like about working at University High School?
The first time I walked into University High School, I felt a sense of community. Community was evident in classrooms and common areas, in the way in which faculty interacted not only with each other, but with students and administration. Now that I have the privilege of being here daily, I see just how deeply each experience here resonates with communal respect, responsibility, and trust. I can’t think of a better place to teach, learn, and grow.
My Minnesotan heart would always rather be outdoors. Coniferous canopies and canoe-filled waters speak to my soul the most. Should the indoors be required, you will find me with the coffee pot on, book in hand, surrounded by the spiny promises of the endless titles in the stacks that line my floors and walls.
