I have been teaching k, k/1 blended, and 1st grade for 15 years!
I believe in the science that states making a student feel safe and loved will improve learning. I work to build relationships with my students and my teaching style strongly reflects this philosophy.
In 2018 I was awarded the Chrystal Apple Excellence in Education Award.
I graduated from Corbin University (Or.) and earned my Masters from Grand Canyon University (Az.).
I am married to a wonderful man who is also in education. We met in college where he played for the baseball team and I played for the softball team. Together we have four BEAUTIFUL little girls who have the biggest hearts! They are 12, 8, 5 and 1. I am so thankful for my many blessings.
