Hello and welcome to the GT Center at Seven Oaks! I am excited to work with these talented, creative, and gifted students on fun and challenging units. Students can anticipate learning adventures throughout their time here where they may identify as historians, mathematicians, engineers, programmers, anthropologists, park rangers, or designers to name a few. Our curriculum encourages a love of learning, critical thinking, and creativity.
A little bit about myself:
- I began my career teaching in West Ada School District (WASD) in 1989!
- All three of my children went through the GT program in WASD.
- I love to travel and look forward to getting back on the road now that I have completed my Masters and GT Endorsement.
- I spent the last seven years as a third-grade teacher at Pepper Ridge. I will miss the staff, students, and families there but am really looking forward to forging new relationships here.
- I love PURPLE, dark chocolate, and teaching!
- 6th grade math, science, and reading
