Hello! Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year here at MMS.
This is my fourth year at Meridian Middle, but I began teaching in 1996. After the 2010-2011 school year I decided to take a break from teaching at the high school level and try something new. I worked for HP as a Technical Writer, and then as a Digital Managing Editor (a fancy way of saying I managed wesites) for Townsquare Media. I discovered there is nothing better than being in a classroom with kids, so I decided to return to education. I love Meridian Middle School, and I thoroughly enjoy weird, wacky, and wonderful sixth graders.
Other stuff about me:
♦ My first priority is being a mom. I am lucky to have two teenaged daughters, Bailey and Brooke, and a son, Jordan. Bailey and Jordan are attending Idaho State University, and Brooke will be a junior in high school this year.
♦ I am married to my best friend, Brad.
♦ We have a dog named Max. Although he is not the brightest animal in the world, we love him.
♦ I love the Boise State Broncos!
♦ I enjoy watching and playing sports, anything outdoors, and of course, reading and writing. I am a published author.
I'm looking forward to getting to know my new sixth graders. Here's to a great year!
