Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Fourth Grade!
This is my 23rd year teaching. I have taught fourth grade at Paramount since we opened our doors thirteen years ago. This year I can also be found at the Virtual School House. I absolutely love teaching and look forward to using technology in new ways to connect with my students. 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 junior at the University of Idaho (Go Vandals!) I love to read, watch movies, visit my kids, and and travel to new places.
My goal for students is to provide a safe place to learn and grow both academically and socially. I hope children will feel 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.
