Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Fourth Grade!
This is my 24th year teaching. I have taught fourth grade at Paramount since we opened our doors fourteen years ago. I love teaching and cannot wait to implement the technology that we have available to connect with students, and further engage them with their learning. This is my great adventure! I am married and have two children, a daughter who is an engineer in Seattle, and a son who is a senior at the University of Idaho (Go Vandals!) I love to read, watch movies, visit my kids, and and travel to new places.
My goal is to provide a safe place for students to learn and grow both academically and socially. I hope children will feel they are valued members of a positive community where they are free to make mistakes and learn from them. I encourage them to take ownership of their learning by setting goals, taking risks, working hard, and persevering to achieve success.
I look forward to working with my students and their families this year.
