Greetings, my most amazing students! This is my sixth year teaching at Centennial and I am so proud to be a part of our Patriot family. 

This year I am teaching English 9 and Speech. I am truly excited for the opportunity to explore a variety of topics, texts and themes alongside you, while teaching you to think critically about the world and your place in it. I believe that we all have a meaningful story to share and that we can learn more about who we are through establishing connections with the stories of others – both true and fictitious. Throughout our time together, you will also be exposed to my love of puns, fluency in sarcasm and hopeless meme addiction. You're welcome! 

I currently live in Nampa with my two daughters, ages 15 and 18, and two sweet, but rambunctious dogs - a Border collie named Mercie  and a Border Collie/Aussie mix named Gizmo. I have two adult children who both live in the Boise area. In my spare time (when I have any), I enjoy reading and writing, spending time with my kids and my friends, epic road trip adventures, impromptu living room dance parties, yelling at the TV during football games (especially when my Seahawks are playing) and car karaoke jam sessions. I love thunderstorms, coffee, teaching, books and the ocean.  

I value every one of my talented, incredible students (that's all of you!) and look forward to learning with you this year!
