I am currently a First Grade Teacher. The first three years of my career I taught Special Education, then transferred into first grade. I have been teaching 1st grade for the past 20 years. It is my passion.
I like to use technology and hands-on activities to engage my students. These types of activities motivate my students and make learning fun.
2004 Mark Twain Elementary Teacher of the Year
I graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary and Special Education. I earned my Masters of Arts in Teaching Degree from Grand Canyon University.
I was born and raised in Carson City, Nevada. My husband and I have 3 children. I enjoy using technology with my students and feel it is a powerful teaching tool. I enjoy creating fun and exciting lessons. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family watching a movies or playing games.
