Welcome to fourth grade! This is a fun and challenging year. We will learn so much together!
I have been teaching for 17 years, 16 of them here at River Valley! I have taught 4th grade for a total of 16 years and 5th grade for a total of 4 years. The math doesn't work, but some of the years I taught a 4th and 5th combined class. I absolutely love teaching the intermediate grades. The students are so smart and capable of so much great work.
I am a native Idahoan. I was born in McCall and have lived in the state my entire life. I think this has helped foster my love for Idaho History and helps me make real world connections for students to the place we live.
I have been married to my husband, Mike for 26 years. We have 3 children and 2 grandchildren. all of them live in the area and we spend a lot of time doing things together. We enjoy outdoor activities like camping and rafting. We also enjoy traveling and try to do regular trips together.
I also love animals and currently have 2 dogs, 3 cats, , and 3 giant goldfish in my backyard pond.
I look forward to spending time with all of my students and their families!
