Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to school! I am looking forward to working with you and your child. My goal is to make this a rewarding, challenging, exciting and fun school year. As an educator, it is my job to not only educate your child, but to also help your child become a lifelong learner. As a parent myself, I strive to educate your child as I would want my own children educated! To achieve this it is essential that we are partners in your child's education. It is also my belief that childhood is a journey, not a race. Keeping these things in mind, we are certain to achieve our goals.
If you are like me, you'll want to know a little about your child’s teacher. I grew up and attended college in Colorado. I taught pre-kindergarten for three years in Denver, Colorado, where I also got my Early Childhood Degree. My husband, three boys and I moved to Idaho in 2006. We've been here since!
I am very excited to be here and teaching at Chief Joseph. Be assured that I will do my best to make this school year an enjoyable time for your child, but also a time filled with real learning. The skills we learn are the building blocks for your child’s future success in school and in life! It is my personal goal to create a nurturing and stimulating environment to make your child's year a great one!
