Degrees and Certifications:
This will be my tenth year working at Discovery Elementary. I absolutely love this school! Every day children and staff interact in a wonderfully collaborative environment of creativity and learning. It has always been my dream to help young children learn. I pursued my passion by obtaining a degree in Early Childhood Education/Blended Special Education from Boise State University in the spring of 2012. This is my eighth year teaching first grade, and I am very passionate about helping each one of my students excel.
I make it a point to share my passion and joy for teaching with my students. Every morning my students come to school they are greeted with a smile and a warm welcome. My first and most important rule of learning is that it be enjoyable. Learning can be difficult, but when it is made interesting and exciting it can positively influence a child's view of education and the world. My hope is to always hear your child say, "I love school!"
I came to Idaho when I was 10 years old and have loved it ever since. I met my high school sweetheart at Borah High and have been married to him for 33 years and counting. We have three fantastic boys, Casey (24), Cameron (22), and Cody (15). Our lives revolve around our children at the moment. As a family we love to get together with extended family, going to good movies, travel, and experiencing new and exciting things.
