Degrees and Certifications:
I grew up in Boise before attending Oregon State University where I earned a bachelors degree in psychology. I later obtained my Masters of Education at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon.
I have been teaching 2nd grade at Ponderosa Elementary for eight years with an amazing staff, supportive community, and wonderful group of kids.
When I am not at school you will find my husband and I camping, hiking, backpacking, skiing, mountain biking, or pursuing one of our favorite hobbies, international travel. We love to travel to places that prompt the question “Why are you going there?” including Ethiopia, Israel, Antarctica, Nicaragua, and Sri Lanka. We share a love of adventure and learning.
I look forward to a productive and exciting school year with my students and their families!
