Welcome to our 2020-2021 school year! 


I am so excited to have the privilege to guide the learning adventure of this fifth grade group!  Teaching has always been my passion, although I have discovered that I am a student as much as a teacher when working with these awsome kids.  They inspire me everyday with their incredible ideas and love of learning.  I completed my college career there with a Master’s of Education from University of Nevada Las Vegas. After teaching 6 years, I decided to make a big change and move to Idaho.  It has been one of the best decisions I have ever made, and I cannot wait to begin my fifth year at BMSA!


I reside in Meridian with my husband, 2 youngest children, 2 dogs, and one cat.  My oldest daughter is a hair stylist here in Meridian, and my stepdaughter lives in Ohio with her mom.  My two youngest children are fortunate enough to experience life here at BMSA! When we are not at school, we enjoy many activites including camping, hiking, soccer, baseball, horseback riding, reading, and spending time together.  I also coach CrossFit in the evening.  While I feel it is important to come to school focused and ready to work, it is equally important to sharpen the saw and find extracurricular activities outside of school!  I am really looking forward to meeting your child.  We are going to have an incredible year of learning!
