Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to 2nd Grade!
This is my third year at Chaparral and my first year in 2nd grade. I am originally from Renton, Washington, but have lived here in Idaho for the last five years. I have absolutely loved exploring this wonderful state and plan to stay for many, many years. I attended Western Washington University where I received my Bachelors in Psychology and Sociology. After moving to Idaho I began working in mental health, which allowed me the opportunity to work with children within the educational field. This inspired me to go back to school to receive my elementary teaching certification, as well as my Masters in Education (Curriculum, Instruction, and Innovation). I live with my wonderful husband and my two adorable cats!
I am so excited to see how our year unfolds and I can't wait to watch all of my students grow academically, socially, and emotionally.
