I taught first grade for seven years, second grade for three years, third grade for one year, and am now teaching Kindergarten. I couldn't be happier!! :)
I strive to create a positive atmosphere where children have FUN while LEARNING! I love creating new activities, and incorporating technology whenever I can. :)

I earned a Bachelor's in Elementary Education from Brigham Young University-Idaho and a Master's in Literacy Education from Idaho State University. I also have a reading endorsement from Idaho.
I have wanted to be a teacher since I was about 4 years old, and I couldn’t be happier to teach Kindergarten! I love ZUMBA, reading, swimming, ice-skating, singing, and all things Kindergarten! Come visit my classroom blog! www.the-sharpenedpencil.com
