I graduated from Taylor University with my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and then went on to get a Master's in Special Education, with an Emphasis in Early Childhood Special Education, from the University of Alaska.
After 7 years of teaching Early Childhood Special Education in the Anchorage School District in Alaska, my family moved to Idaho in 2009. I took a hiatus from teaching for a few years to raise my kids, then returned to the classroom in 2015 with the West Ada School District at Discovery Elementary. In 2019, I joined the staff at Willow Creek Elementary.
My husband, Jason, and I have 5 wonderful kids that range in age from 19 to 12. I love family bike rides, coffee, books, traveling all over the world, and teaching my preschool students!
