TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Teaching has been a part of my life since I can remember, being raised as the oldest of seven children by parents who are both naturally gifted and professional teachers. :) I earned my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education at Brigham Young University and have taught multiple grade levels at schools in Utah and Colorado. I have also run a preschool in my home and home-schooled one of my sons during his 5th grade year. My church activity has blessed me with numerous years of teaching experience with ages 3 years through adult. I love teaching!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I have high expectations for all of my students in regards to academic rigor and behavior. These expectations are consistent, and communicated with love. Creating highly engaging learning experiences supports these expectations... and is SO much more fun! :)

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

My highest honor is being married to my sweetheart of more than 20 years, and being the mother of four incredible children! In the teaching field, I have been a mentor-teacher and team-lead for 4 years and have been invited and accepted into an administrator-training academy. I will be published on TPT's Teaching Made Practical blog by Kalena Baker in early Fall 2019.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Determined NOT to become a teacher just because it was a natural fit for me, I tried other majors while studying at BYU in the math and science departments (two of my academic loves). After those pursuits did not turn out to be fulfilling, I signed up for the introduction for Elementary Education; during the first few minutes of the first class I felt "called" to teach. Since then, I have never considered anything else as a career. I am where I am meant to be. :)

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

One of my great joys in the teaching field has been the wonderful connection of what I studied in school and my lifelong desire to be a mother. I chose to take time off of teaching to stay home and raise my children for nearly 15 years. My own children are, of course, my very favorite students... and I have grown to love hundreds of other students in the nearly-nine years that I have been back in the classroom!
