Degrees and Certifications:
I am excited to be at Willow Creek for a fifth year and again teaching second graders. I've taught in West Ada for twenty-eight years, teaching K-3. I received my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Early Childhood Education, from Chadron State College in Nebraska. I have a strong commitment to allow children to be children and create an environment that supports how children learn best-by thinking and doing! Which is why teaching at Willow Creek with its focus on 21st Century Learning is such a great fit for me.
Although I was born and raised in Nebraska, Idaho has become our home. I'm married and we have two married daughters and four grandchildren. We are lucky they all live close by! When I'm not looking for new ideas for teaching, I enjoy gardening, reading, and remodeling our home!
