Hello Kinder Families!
I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with you and your student this year as your kinder officially enters the world of academia. We are going to explore, learn, and grow more than you can imagine this year.
Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of California at Santa Barbara. I followed that up with earning my K-8 Teaching Credential from the University of California at Irvine. Since then, I' ve also earned my K-8 Teaching Credintials in Tennessee and, of course, Idaho. I've taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade for 7 years in California and Tennessee. Since joining the Joplin staff in 2012, I've had the honor of teaching kinder. I love it!! When I'm not at Joplin, I can be found walking our beagle, trying to jog, reading, and cheering my own children on at their various sporting events.
I believe each child is unique. Each and every child can succeed. I will encourage your child each and every day to become the best they can be. One of our classroom mottos is "I can try my best." I look forward to working with you and your child this year! We have a wonderful journey ahead!
