Degrees and Certifications:
Very few people can honestly say they GENUINELY love their job. I, however, am one of the lucky few who truly enjoy going to work every day. Especially when I have such wonderful students and families making it so easy to love! Thank you for entrusting the care of your children to me. I am thrilled to be your child's 4th grade teacher this year as we embark on this journey together.
Not only do I have an exciting and rewarding career, but I am super proud of my family as well. I am married and have two children with one on the way! Ariana, my daughter, is 5 years old. She is in kindergarten and loves to horseback ride, dance and do gymnastics. My son, Nico, is 3 years old and just started pre-school. He LOVES playing sports and being active. We live in Eagle with our French Bulldog named Chloe. When I am not spending time teaching or caring for my family, I enjoy reading, taking long walks around my neighborhood and shopping at Target. I love to go out to eat (yum), shop for just about anything (except groceries), and have fun playing with my kids. I've been a teacher for 8 years, having taught kindergarten for one year, sixth grade for one year, and fourth grade for 6 years (my favorite grade to teach)!!
If you were to ask me where I see myself in ten years, I would probably say...right here! It is my dream to continue to be the best teacher that I can possibly be, striving every day to make learning meaningful for the eager students that enter my classroom. I will continue to work hard and expect the best from my students. My desire to keep learning and growing will never end.
Welcome to 4th grade! Let the learning begin!
