“The aim of education is the knowledge, not of facts, but of values.”

~William S. Burroughs

As the principal of Appleton-Milan Elementary School in the LqPV district, I am blessed to work with an amazing group of hard-working, dedicated, and motivated professionals.  Already I have witnessed their relentless dedication to their craft.  It is a pleasure joining them in the education of our community’s children.  Additionally, communication is the key to the success of any endeavor.  Please feel free to contact me at any time with ideas and concerns.

Born and raised in Milan, I have a kindred connection to this learning community.  After high school graduation, I attended the College of St. Benedict and received my B.A. in elementary education.  I had the opportunity to teach at Prairie Correctional Facility in Appleton for two years and then moved to the Twin Cities metro area.  I taught 7 years in Excelsior in grades 5-8 and then accepted a middle school administrator’s position in Eagan and was in that position for 8 years.  While living in the Twin Cities, I earned my M.A. in Educational Leadership from the University of St. Thomas.  Additionally, I earned my Educational Specialist Degree/K-12 Principal’s License and certification in Gifted and Talented Instruction also from UST.  Education is something I hold dear to my heart and find it valuable for everyone!

In my spare time I enjoy being active having run 8 marathons and several half-marathons.  You might also find me bike-riding on the roads in the area.  Traveling is something I greatly enjoy, but reading a fabulous book ranks right up at the top too!

The beginning of the school year is my favorite time of the year and it has been loads of fun meeting everyone and getting into the ‘school routine’!   Go Eagles!!

You actually make it look so easy with your performance but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never comprehend. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

Basically I was searching for this topic from many days. I didn’t get the information which I was searching. Then I realized that, many sites are simply sharing the information without checking that whether it is relevant or not. I was really disappointed by reading many articles. Then I came to your article and it is really amazing. You have all the supportive information with good ideas in your post. Keep writing such great quality posts. I have got good inspiration from your blog. I always like to read good articles to get some knowledge of different topics. Your writing style is unique and gentle.

Education is not only about to get the degrees. Rather it is about to get the knowledge to learn about the facts, norms, and values. Education makes you a perfect person in every aspect. This article is holding a great message by the principle of the Appleton-Milan Elementary school.
