I'm in my 3rd year teaching! I taught 4th grade for 2 years and this year I switched to 6th. I do really miss 4th grade, but I love teaching 6th grade! I love being able to connect with my kids on a deeper level. We have a lot of fun in 6th grade!
I do balanced literacy in my classroom, and inquiry based math and science. I believe that all students can learn and grow in the classroom.
The notes my students give me are my honors.
I graduated from BYU with a degree in Elementary Education, and minors in TESOL K-12, Music, and Family Life. I love to learn!
In my spare time, I love to make cupcakes (and have been dubbed the "cupcake angel") and read books. My family is so important to me, and I love spending time with them. I also am an avid fan of well-tuned pianos.
