About Ms. Amy

Hello! I have taught in E2C since fall 2017. I graduated from Winona State University in May 2016 with a degree in Elementary Education and a Middle School Math minor. I started at Bluffview as a long-term Children’s House substitute in late January 2017. I was brand-new to Montessori education but quickly fell in love with it! I accepted the E2C position later in the spring and began my Montessori training program that summer. It has been quite the adjustment, but one I have loved making!
Originally I am from a small town in southeastern Wisconsin called Twin Lakes (right by Lake Geneva). I moved to Winona when I started college in 2012, and was thrilled that this town has a movie theater and TWO bowling alleys! Now that I have been here for several years, it feels very much like home and I am tremendously grateful to be working at this wonderful school with such a supportive community.
Some of my favorites: yellow and purple, dogs and pelicans, word puns, and hot chocolate.
