Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelor of Science in Education
I am excited to introduce myself as your child’s fourth grade teacher. I look forward to getting to know you and your child.
I received my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Idaho. Since receiving my degree, I have taught preschool, first, second, third, fourth and fifth grade. I have been teaching fourth grade at Paramount since 2007.
When I am not pursuing my passion of teaching, I enjoy hiking, camping, skiing, and visiting the bookstore or library with my two girls. Also, we enjoy walking and playing with our border collie, Journey.
It is my philosophy that each child deserves the opportunity to succeed. As your child's teacher it is my goal to facilitate an environment where students feel comfortable to take risks, to share opinions, to make and to learn from mistakes. It is my hope that your child will love learning, and carry with them a passion to create, question, and explore throughout their lifetime. In addition to being a facilitator of academics, I will strive to foster the social, emotional, and intellectual development of your child.
I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to be a part of your child’s fourth grade year. It is going to be a busy year filled with adventure and learning.
