Welcome to 3rd Grade!
Hi! This is my 11th year teaching at Pepper Ridge Elementary. This is my 8th year in 3rd grade and previous to that I taught 2nd grade and special education. I grew up here in Boise, attending Borah High, BSU (BA History), and later George Fox University in Newberg, Oregon (MA Teaching). I married my husband, Scott in 2005. Scott is a decorated Marine Corps combat veteran, and a wonderful partner. We have two beautiful Golden Retreiver's and reside in Kuna, Idaho. I absolutely love what I do. I am honored to be your child's teacher. I believe that children learn by doing, and make every effort to incorporate hands-on and meaningful student centered lessons. I also believe in teaching the whole child and value the differences that make each student special. I educate each student to make the most growth possible for them not only academically, but personally as well.
I love Pepper Ridge. I have enjoyed working and collaborating with all of our wonderful staff. This community has been a beautiful extension of my life, and I am forever grateful for the opportunity to serve you and your children in anyway I can. Thank you for being AMAZING!
