Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year and to fourth grade at Paramount Elementary School!
This is my twenty-third year of teaching elementary children in the West Ada School District. I have taught fourth grade at Paramount since we opened our doors twelve years ago. Prior to opening Paramount, I taught at Chaparral and Summerwind Elementary Schools. I enjoy teaching fourth grade because I love Idaho History and because children at this age are creative, independent, and eager to learn. In my classroom I try to teach students that school is their job. Our focus is on responsibility, respect, and cooperation. I emphasize that it is important to do quality work, complete work on time, have good character, and to be punctual.
I am a native of Northern Idaho (Cottonwood, Idaho) and went to school at both the University of Idaho (Go Vandals!) and Boise State University. My husband, Jacob, and I have a sophomore son at Bishop Kelly High School and twin seven year old boys who are in first grade this year at Paramount. Our family enjoys lacrosse, football, traveling, and being outdoors.
I am looking forward to working with you and your child throughout the school year. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns.
