PROFESSIONAL

Welcome! I am looking forward to my 14th year teaching at Eagle High School. As a language arts teacher and reading specialist, I am committed to helping students improve their reading and writing skills. Before entering the teaching profession, I wrote feature articles for several newspapers across the country as my husband pursued his career as a USAF FB-111A aviator. Later, I realized a passion for teaching students, especially those who struggle with reading comprehension and fluency. I received an MA in Reading Education and accepted a position with an applied brain research company that helps struggling students. Determined to understand how the brain functions in learning, I acquired a doctoral degree in education and published a dissertation entitled Exploring Brain-based Instructional Practices in Secondary Education Classes.

PERSONAL

This summer my husband and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary by taking an Alaskan cruise. I love to travel and have been to many places around the globe. I am also blessed to have two children who are the light of my life. I enjoy reading, especially historical fiction. I play golf and tennis, and I’m a big BSU Broncos fan. For me, teaching is not so much a job as it is a privilege. There is nothing quite so rewarding than making a positive difference in the lives of students.
