I am going on my third year teaching third grade at an amazing elementary school in Utah. Nothing gets me more excited than seeing that lightbulb click on when a child is learning something new. I love learning from children. I have also taught piano and violin (private and group) lessons to children for five years.
POSITIVE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT! :) Nurturing, hands-on learning, inquiry learning, apply to real life situations

Woolridge Elementary - Virginia Swift Creek Middle School - Virginia Clover Hill High School - Virginia Cosby High School - Virginia Lone Peak High School - Utah I wanted to become a third grade teacher when I was in third grade thanks to Mrs. Merson, my teacher. I even asked for an overhead projector for Christmas that year to play school on - I was elated to have one to use on my sisters and their friends every day after school.
I love to read, cook, decorate cakes, do yoga, perform music, and work with Make-A-Wish Foundation, Pearls with Purpose, and Barbara Barrington Jones Family Foundation. I believe that dancing in the kitchen and singing in the car is the cure all to a smile.
