Degrees and Certifications:
This year will be my 31th year in the West Ada School District. Currently, I'm a Title 1 Reading and Math Teacher at Peregrine Elementary. I enjoy helping students improve their reading and setting them on the course to becoming life-long readers. Reading can take you places that no where else can. I also enjoy using the Mathematical Thinking Model to help students learn to do math. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, my cat, Emily Rose, traveling, and exercising. I have taught Resource Room for six years and Title 1 for 24 years in the district. I received my Bachelor of Science degree from Idaho State University in Elementary and Special Education, and my Master of Arts degree from Boise State University. I also spent a year being trained as a Reading Recovery Teacher.
