I am in my sixteenth year of teaching elementary school. My first two years were in fourth grade and then 12 in second. I am now back in fourth grade. I have my Gifted and Talented Teaching Endorsement and teach in a regular education classroom.
I love providing hands on experiences fro my students. I also implement a lot of technology in my classroom from interactive whiteboard lessons to web quests to student publishing experiences on laptop computers.
I graduated summa cum laude from Utah Valley University in 2002. I received our PTA Golden Apple Award in 2011. It was my privelege to present at the 2012 Utah Association for Gifted Children's Annual Conference.
I graduated from Utah Valley University in 2002 with a BS in Elementary Education and received my Gifted and Talented Endorsement in 2011.
Spending time with my family is my favorite past-time. I love to travel to Yellowstone National Park and back to my home state of California.
