I have been involved in education for many years. I've enjoyed my time as a 6th grade teacher for the last three years but got my start in 1st and 3rd grade. I am the 6th grade team leader and I enjoy learning from and teaching other teachers around me. Math, science and literacy are three of my favorite subjects to "create" new material for, but I love learning and growing in every other subject area.
I love to begin every lesson with something that makes my students sit on the edge of their seats. When I know I've got their attention, It's time to start with giving good directions and clear expectations so that I can set them out to explore. I believe in teamwork, exploration, high-expectations, and rich extensions.

I started my education at BYU-Idaho in Nursing and Biology. I realized that my passion for these subjects came from wanting to educate others about those topics, so I became and Elementary Education major and have been teaching ever since.
I am a visual learner- so the things I love to upload and download tend to be things for the bulletin board or things to put inside of a notebook!
