Teaching is my passion. I've taught a variety of grades at a variety of public and private schools. I started my teaching career at a private school in Taiwan, then moved home to Utah where I've taught ever since. Currently I teach first grade at a charter school and am so grateful to love what I do and the little kiddos I do it for. I am also finishing up my masters degree and though I LOVE to learn I can't wait to be finished!
The schools I've taught at have all been very different and each has added something new to my style and experience. A key ingredient to my teaching is music. I try to use music and rhythm in every subject.
I have a BA in Early Childhood a Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction.
I have the best husband in the world and a kitty that we rescued from the mouth of a dog.
