Hi! I am thrilled to be teaching First Grade this year!  I am excited to explore and learn with your children.  This is my third year teaching at Mary McPherson Elementary.  Prior to teaching, I substitute taught in the Boise School District for ten years grades K-6th.  It was an amazing adventure to continue my education and follow my dream to become a real teacher.  In my spare time, I enjoy exploring downtown Boise, playing Ultimate Frisbee, and jogging the greenbelt.  My favorite place in the whole world is the ocean.  My joy is my four children and 2 grandchildren.  My passion is teaching and I totally love to learn!  I am looking forward to enjoying this year and am excited to have your child in my class.

HI Everyone! I hope you are all enjoying the nice spring weather and keeping safe at home.  I am enjoying reading with students everyday.  Please check your emails and sign up to read with me one afternoon each week.

Also, If you need help with your math, we can do that too.
