My Why

I have wanted to be a teacher since I was in Kindergarten. My mom is in her 33rd year as a teacher, so I have grown up watching her. I saw the impact she had on kids and their experiences at school and knew I wanted to be a teacher. Students 7 hours, Monday thru Friday at school. That time adds up! I want to make each student feel loved, supported, and believed in. I want school to be an exciting and welcoming place where each student feels like they can learn and make a few mistakes along the way. Each year my students truly become my kids forever no matter where they go!

 

My Background

I grew up in a small town in Nevada at the base of mountains of Lake Tahoe. I moved to Boise in 2014 to attend Boise State University. I graduated in 2018 with my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with a reading specialist endorsement. After a year of teaching, I went back to BSU and earned my master’s degree in Educational Leadership in the spring of 2021. This is my fourth year teaching, all at Summerwind! I taught third grade for three years and moved to second grade this year. I feel so lucky to be surrounded by awesome students, families, and staff here at Summerwind!

 

My Interests

When not teaching, I love to spend time outdoors with my 3 year old black lab, Hudson. We make frequent trips back home to Lake Tahoe and the mountains. I also really love to travel! I studied abroad in Ireland for a summer. My goal is to get to 20 countries, currently at 13!
