After finishing high school in Spring Grove, I headed to Southwestern Community College in Creston, IA and graduated with my Associate of Arts Degree. I finished my undergrad at Minnesota State University, Mankato with a degree in Elementary Education and a specialty in middle school math. In efforts to continue my lifelong learning goals, I completed my Master's of Education in Teaching and Learning from St. Mary's University of Winona in May of 2015.
My husband Tim, son Bernt (6), and daughter Kallyn (4) live on a farm north of Spring Grove. Tim is a busy farmer raising crops, beef cattle and turkeys at Morken Farms, LLC. When I am not in the classroom, I love to spend time running, in the gym coaching and watching sporting events. In our free time we love to go for gator rides in the pasture, work with our horse Ruby and hang out with our friends and family.
Come to our classroom and visit anytime. We love visitors!
