Welcome to Loring Community School and Physical Education. I have been teaching with the Minneapolis Public School system for twenty-seven years, with the past nineteen years at Loring. 

Physical Education at Loring consists of equal time dedicated to improving the students’ skills in the areas of Games, Dance, Gymnastics and Fitness. The focus with the elementary age student is to teach skills in a safe, secure, and positive environment. All skills can be performed at different levels of difficulty and with varying degrees of quality. Student progress is evaluated through skills and learning experiences considered developmentally appropriate at grade level and designed to meet the Physical Education Standards.

I earned a B.S. in Physical Education, DAPE, and Coaching from North Dakota University in Fargo, North Dakota. My Masters in Education was received through St. Mary's University. I enjoy, and have played sports of all varieties, for as long as I can remember and currently play in a women's hockey league. I have coached and officiated at both the high school and college level.

I am very proud of my three children. Tyler is 21 and a senior at University of Oregon.  Emma is 19. She is living in the area and working as a PCA.  Noah, age 12 in October, he is in 6th grade. He loves playing football.

Loring School has a wellness committee that works with our community to support healthy living. Some of the activities the Wellness Committee is involved in are Healthy School Program, Minne-Loppet Cross Country Ski Program, School Yard Garden, beehives and P.A.L.A. program.
