About Me
I recently got married to my wonderful husband, Cody Wierzbicki. He is my EXACT opposite and I am so grateful for him. I also am a proud bunny Mommy to a darling rabbit named Delilah. My husband is obsessed with anything Minnesota sports so you will find a big Minnesota University bulletin board in my classroom. I have called my students the "gophers" in reference to Minnesota's mascot, 'Goldy the Gopher'.  In my free time, I'm usually in the middle of a crowd at a concert (when we can all do that again) or waking up early to exercise. If I'm vacationing, you'll find me near the mountains. I've been to the Smoky mountains countless times and recently fell in love with the Cascades in Washington and Oregon. The haystacks in Cannon Beach will always hold a special place in my heart- I can't wait to visit it again! I'm very goal-driven and motivated and I think it's so important to try and teach that to children.
