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 seven years, Mr. Osterman, my two-year-old son Declan, and my cat, Lucy. We enjoy going on walks, playing outside, and going swimming. In my free time, I love to read, do puzzles, and collect movies.
This is my eleventh 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) have been a great sounding board for me. My mom is also ever supportive of my career as a teacher and of our classroom. I also have an aunt and 2 cousins in California that are teachers. Needless to say, teaching's in my blood. :)
I am excited to be part of this fantastic 3rd grade team and look forward to all the learning that will occur this year.
