Why Whitewater?
After student teaching here at Lincoln School with Mrs. Rutoski's first graders, I knew I wanted to come back as a "real" teacher some day. The staff was friendly and helpful, the families were supportive and the kids were awesome. I earned my Bachelor's and Master's degrees from UW-Whitewater and for the past 34 years I've had the privilege of teaching here at Lincoln School.

I have two children.  My daughter, Emilie, is a UW-Madison graduate.  She teaches middle school language arts and social studies in the Madison Metropolitan School District.  My son, Alex, also graduated from UW-Madison. He is attending graduate school and studying to become a physical therapist. 

Our second graders are working hard and having fun. 
I am looking forward to another great year!
