Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! I'm so excited to be your child's teacher! This is my 18th year at Andrus and my 16th year teaching 4th grade. I know it's going to be an absolulely fabulous year! I love 4th graders and think they are some of the best kids to be around! I graduated from BSU with a degree in Elementary Education with a minor in reading. I completed a masters degree in curriculum and instruction from NNU. When I'm not at school; I'm with my family. My husband Jeff and I have been married for 18 years and have 3 children. My daughter, Grace, is in the 9th grade at Rocky (how did she get that old?!), my 2nd daughter Reese is a 6th grader at Sawtooth, and my baby, Leonard, is in 2nd grade here at Andrus. So I obviously think its the best school around! :) We have a menagerie with 4 cats, 3 dogs, 6 chickens, 3 guinea pigs and 3 fish. My favorite thing to do is READ!!!! I also like going for walks and hitting up Starbucks :)
I can't wait to share this school year with you! I believe consistent communication between home and school is the key to success! Please feel free to contact me at any time during the school year about any questions or concerns that come up! I am always happy to hear from you.
