Bachelor of Arts in Education K-8 Minor in Music
Welcome to 3rd grade! I am so excited to have you in my class this year. We have lots of fun things planned for the year and I am looking forward to it all.
Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I was born and raised in Boise, Idaho. I graduated from Pacific Lutheran University which is located in Washington. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Education and a minor in music. I moved to Twin Falls in 2011 to teach 2nd grade. I taught there for 6 years. I moved back to Boise and now live with my husband of almost five years, Mr. Osterman, my son Declan, and my cat, Lucy. This is my ninth year of teaching and my husband is ever supportive of my career. My mother-in-law is a retired teacher and she was a great resource for me while in Twin Falls. Now that I am back in the Treasure Valley, my dad (a former teacher) and my cousin (a current West Ada teacher) are looking forward to being a sounding board for me. I also have an aunt and 2 cousins in California that are teachers. I am excited to be a part of this fantastic 3rd grade team and look forward to all the learning that will occur this year.
