Being part of the Spalding STEM Academy community is a privilege! The staff and students are the best! I hold a BA in Elementary Education, with an Early Childhood Emphasis, and taught for 18 years in grades 2,3,4, and 6. In 2002 I received my MA in school counseling, and also remain current with my Idaho license for Marriage and Family therapy. There is nowhere else I'd rather be than with elementary aged children. They inspire me, and my days are enriched by connecting with students and families every day! Remember, if you have any questions or concerns, just call or email me.
On a personal note, I am married and have two grown children, who have blessed us with wonderful grandsons! My husband retired recently, so we have been enjoying the extra time together. We love outdoor activities, and spend a lot of time in McCall with family, friends, and the wildlife. When I have time to myself, I practice self-care - relaxing by quilting or reading, going on short (or long!)drives in my Miata :), physical activities (I love to swim!), trying out new recipes (love my smoothies!), and the occasional pampering!
