This is my 3rd year teaching at Mountain View High School and I am looking forward to a fabulous school year. I love teaching English and am excited to be at one of the best schools in Idaho. I am once again excited to teach at the Senior level and help students prepare to enter the "real world"! I believe that strong reading and writing skills are essential to succeed in today's society and I will hold all students to high standards and expect diligent effort from everyone.
I was raised in a military family and moved nearly every two years during my childhood. I studied Graphic Design and French at Boise State University and completely fell in love with everything that the Treasure Valley has to offer. I have now lived here for 17 years. After spending time exploring the area with my husband and two kitties, and 5 chickens, I settled down, got a teaching certification in English and have never been happier.
I like to spend my free time riding my bike, reading and writing (of course), skiing, mountain biking, swimming, and working in my garden whenever I can.
