Welcome to Prairie Winds Middle School!
I am excited to welcome you to Prairie Winds Middle School! Our mission is to assure learning excellence and readiness for a changing world.
I believe that more than anything, education has the potential to enrich a person’s quality of life and am proud to be an educator. It is my privilege to ensure every student has access to an equitable education and the opportunity to achieve their very best. I’ve always thought of school as an exciting place and feel extremely lucky to continue my journey in education at Prairie Winds.
I have been an educator in the Mankato Schools and my husband and I have lived in Mankato since I taught Social Studies at Mankato East High School in the mid-nineties. I have three children who all graduated from the Mankato Schools. They are continuing their educations by attending college. One is at North Dakota State, one at Augustana University, and the last at the University of Wisconsin - Stout.
I am honored to be part of the Prairie Winds community and look forward to partnering with families in supporting the journey our students take toward growth and development.
