A bit about me...
I graduated from ISU in Pocatello with my BA in Elementary Education; K-8 with a double minor in Humanities and Social Science. I continued on and earned my MA from Chapman University in Curriculum and Instruction. I have also earned certifications in Gifted And Talented Eduaction, ELL., Ruby Payne, S.T.E.M, and Project Lead The Way. Most recently I was recognized as a Master Educator through the state of Idaho. This is my fourth year at Meridian Middle School and my 7th year in this district. Prior to teaching in Idaho, my husband and I both taught at the same middle school in California for quite a few years. Over the years, I have taught 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th grade.
I have been married for 22 yrs. and have 3 children. My husband is a 7th and 8th grade math teacher here at Meridian Middle. My son Joel is 14 yrs. old and 6'3" already. I am now the shortest in the family. Joel loves basketball and learning new things! He also plays the drums and loves gaming. My middle daughter, Ella, is 16 and in 11th grade. She has a great voice and loves to sing, but only at home. She also loves to play sports. She is on her school's JV volleyball and basketball team and Varsity golf team. My oldest daughter is Faith, and she is in Iowa starting her third year of college. She is a Biology major, minoring in Environmental Science. She is also on a scholarship playing softball for the school. As if she wasn't busy enough with sports and academics, she also works part time as an assistant in the Welcome Center trying to help pay for her college.
As you can tell, I love my family and education! I love both learning and teaching and pray I continue to be a lifelong learner and inspiration to others to find their passion. I'm sure you will learn a lot more about me as the year continues because I love to share my life with my students! I couldn't be happier to be a part of Meridian Middle School! I hope you have a great school year no matter what this year might look like as we face more challenges ahead with COVID.
