I graduated with a Bachelors in Elementary Education from Utah State in 2013. The 2018 school year will be my 3rd year in 1st grade and my 4th year teaching. I love teaching the little ones. It makes me so happy to see the progress they make through the year! I enjoy getting to know my students have a personal interest in their success.
Before teaching, I was a stay at home mom to 3 little girls. They are not so little anymore and I find myself in a house full of teenage girls! Needless to say my husband and I enjoy getting out on dates! I like spending time with my family, going to the movies, traveling, exercise, camping, reading, watching survivor, listening to country music and of course the rocking 80's bands.
I am looking forward to another awesome year in 1st grade!!
