Degrees and Certifications:
I come from a family of teachers, am an avid reader and have been in love with writing since the day I learned to hold a pencil; all making the decision to become a Language Arts teacher an easy one for me. I am a native Idahoan and earned my Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education from Idaho State University in 2007. I began teaching that year here at LSMS. During my initial time here, I taught 7th grade writing (both GT and general ed) and 8th grade reading/writing. After taking two years off from teaching, I could not ignore the calling to return and began back here at Lowell Scott in the fall of 2015 as the GT Language Arts teacher for both 7th and 8th grade. In addition to teaching, I have coached cross-country here at LSMS since 2015. My favorite job is being a mother to my beautiful children (2 adult boys and 2 eight-year old girls), but being part of this amazing journey with my students continues to be one of the greater blessings in my life.
