This is my 20th year as a professional educator and I LOVE BEING A TEACHER and a LEARNER! I have taught, mentored, and coached in grades K - 6 and I currently teach pre-service junior and senior elementary education majors at Utah Valley University.
I use whole brain teaching passionately and believe that teachers must creatively engage ALL learners. There is a place in education for clear direct instruction, as well as cooperative learning and inquiry. I've perfected lesson planning and I enjoy teaching others to succeed in the classroom!

I am an inspiring, loving, joyful woman of light. I bring peace, freedom and passion empowering all children to live, learn, and teach in a world of healing and abundance. I adore my three daughters, Jimmy Buffett tunes, all things Disney, Sharpie markers, and almond Snickers bars...and diet Coke of course!
