Principal

This is my first year as principal at St. Joseph School.  Before that I taught in grades 6 – 8 since 1994 including 6th grade math, computers, religion; 7th grade math, social studies, computers; 8th grade math, social studies, computers.  I received a B.S. in Elementary Education and a minor in Social Science from UW-River Falls.  I live in Dodgeville with my husband, Denny, who is a teacher and coach at the Dodgeville High School.  We also own a 370 acre farm, raising 100 head of cattle and growing a variety of crops. We have 3 grown children.  Matt lives in Dodgeville with his wife, Nikki, and two children, Marlie and Karter (both attend St. Joseph School.)  He is a physical education teacher at the Dodgeville Elementary School and head boys’ basketball coach for Dodgeville.  Pete lives in NYC and is a financial advisor in mergers and acquisitions for Anheuser-Busch.  He is engaged and planning a wedding for September. Katie is a RN at UW Hospital in Madison.  She works on the transplant wing taking care of patients who have had liver, kidney and pancreas transplants.

I have loved my years at St. Joseph School.  It was a difficult decision to leave the classroom because I love teaching, but I felt I was being called to a different position to impact students’ lives in a different way.
