Degrees and Certifications:
I am exceedingly happy to be teaching your child this year! This is my fourteenth year of teaching. I have taught grades Kindergarten, First Grade, and Third Grade. Before I became a classroom teacher, I taught English to adult Second Language Learners, and taught children working in the entertainment industry (movie sets, commercials, etc.). I have two teaching credentials, a Single Subject credential in Social Science that I can use to teach high school, as well as a Multiple Subject credential that is used for teaching in elementary school. I also have a Master's Degree in Teaching with a specialization in reading. It is such a blessing to be able to use my knowledge and experience to teach your children! My husband and I recently relocated to Idaho and we are enjoying getting to know the surrounding areas. I am an avid runner. I have run 16 marathons including 4 Boston Marathons. I also love to mountain bike with my husband. We can be found out on the trails every free chance we can get! Your child's learning and progress in school are important to me. I am looking forward to working together with you to ensure their success. If ever you have questions or concerns regarding your child, please don't hesitate to contact me. E-mail is the fastest, most efficient way to contact me as I am able to get back to you right away. If you would like to talk in person, I am always available to meet after school. Here's to a great year!
