PROFESSIONAL

Welcome! I am looking forward to my 15th 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

 I love to travel and have been to many places around the globe. Next summer, I'm planning to visit Japan. I've been married to my wonderful husband for 41 years and 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.
