Welcome to fourth grade! This is a fun and challenging year. We will learn so much together!
Many of you have probably met me. I have been teaching for 22 years, 21 of them here at River Valley! I have taught 4th grade for a total of 21 years and fifth grade for a total of 4 years. The math doesn't work, but for some of those 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 32 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. My family also consists of a dog, and three cats, that run the house, and a school of goldfish that reside in my backyard pond.
I also enjoy running, and over the past few years have run several half marathons. I love the challenge!
I look forward to spending time with all of my students and their families! If you have any questions,please feel free to contact me. Happy Fourth Grade!
