Welcome to my webpage! I am the newcomer teacher at Frontier Elementary. My students are new to the United States!  I’m grateful to have an opportunity to work with them. My goals are to teach all my new students to read and write in English and adjust themselves to life in Idaho as soon as they can.  My instruction is student centered.  I develop my lessons to meet their needs, interests, and learning potential. I enjoy working with parents as much as possible so please feel free to contact me about your child anytime.
