Tell us a little about yourself.
I work at the Citizens League as a public policy analyst, focusing mostly on education policy. I grew up in Minneapolis and went to Barton, South High and Washburn.

Hi all -

I'm a former Minneapolis Public Schools student and the current lead education staffer for the Citizens League. I went to Barton Open from kindergarten through 8th grad and then bounced around some Minneapolis high schools - first at South, then at Washburn. (I was NOT a great student!)

Oh, that picture is (was!) this huge tree on my block that all the neighbors called "Big Tree" (creative name, right?!). It was cut down this summer because of dutch elm and it was so sad for all of us, since it was really sort of place to play for lots of the kids in the neighborhood. It was over 100 years old, too, apparently. We were sad to see it I took some pictures.

Hi! I was told by Brett that I should contact you about a writing group? Can you tell me more about this? I love to write, so maybe it would be a good opportunity. Thanks!

PSEO is going great!! I love it so much. Maybe I'm just glad to be out of my high school but I'm really lucky I got the chance to do this and its helping me a lot by saving some good, hard cash! :)
