Meet Your Teacher!
This is my 27th year of teaching! I have taught 1st Grade, 2nd Grade, 3rd Grade and Special Education. I taught at Star Elementary for twenty-one years, and this is my sixth year at Barbara Morgan STEM Academy. I love finding new ways to use technology in my classroom that facilitate students creating. I lead our school's Student Technology Club, and afterschool Coder's Club. The best part of my job is spending time with kids learning every day!

I have been married to my amazing husband, Doug for 20 years. He is a web developer for a company in Utah, and is able to work remotely from his office in Star, or our cabin in the mountains. :) . He LOVES to go fly-fishing! We love spending our weekends at our cabin in Lowman with my brother and sister-in-law who have a cabin right next door!

My brother and sister-in-law live in Boise, and have a cabin right next door to us in the mountains! They have two wild and crazy dogs that we love immensely!
Mom and Dad
My Mom and Dad live in Boise. They spend a lot of time at the cabin with us, and help out with lots of class projects! The kids will love getting to know Mrs. W. this year.
Mom and Dad
My mother-in-law and father-in-law live in Tennessee. They grow amazing gardens and love spending time at Dollywood.
Five years ago my sweet, wonderful Grandma passed away. She was 91 years old, and loved to hear stories and see pictures of the kids in my classroom. She was one of the most loving influences in my life.
I spent a lot of time this summer in the mountains! We picked huckleberries, rode our 4-wheelers, stayed at the cabin, and went fishing! I went to the Oregon Coast with my family in June. This summer I participated in lots of online learning and reading books! It was an awesome summer of learning and mountain time!
My Best Friends!
I have a very special group of women that are like sisters to me! We are all educators, and live all over the United States and Canada. We talk daily. These women are my strength, my rock, my prayer warriors, and my inspiration. I am blessed to have them in my life.
