About me

Industry Education
Occupation Teacher
Location St. Paul, Minnesota, United States
Introduction I have been president of the St. Paul Federation of Teachers, the union representing the teachers and educational assistants of St. Paul Public Schools since 2005. I have taught middle school English for 13 years in St. Cloud, Minnesota; Camas, Washington, Seoul, South Korea; and St. Paul, earning my National Board Certification in Early Adolescent/English-Language Arts in 2004. I grew up in a family of teachers on Minnesota's Iron Range so I recognize the power of labor unions to improve peoples' lives as well as the power of good teaching and strong public schools.
