Degrees and Certifications:
This is my first year as a teacher, but not quite my first year at Siena! My mom, Miss Charlotte (see photo), has been the head secretary since our school opened, and I previously worked at the Y right next door, so I've been around for a while!
I've lived in Boise my whole life and even attended school in the West Ada school district for all of my K-12 education. I graduated from Boise State in May 2018 with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education, a minor in Psychology, and a teaching endorsement in Math. I love learning, and teaching is definitely a job where one has to learn something new every day!
In my time outside of school, I like to spend time with my family, my boyfriend, and my cat. Hiking and biking are my two favorite activities, but I also snowboard, ride dirtbikes, and dabble in the fine art of retail therapy. My mom and I try to take a yearly vacation to the Oregon Coast, our favorite place! My cat, Sundae, gets talked about in class frequently. I like to think of her as the unofficial mascot of our classroom.
Our official mascot is Spiderman. All of the 5th grade teachers choose a superhero to represent their classroom. I chose Spiderman because he is the newest Avenger, he's young, and he doesn't yet know what he's capable of but he's excited to be there and excited to help!* So pretty much just like me, but way cooler.
If you would like to contact me, my email address is: email@example.com
Email is the best way to get ahold of me, and I try to respond within 24 hours during the school week. Weekends may vary.
*If you know a lot more about Spiderman than I do, I'm so sorry to have butchered his story. I'm still figuring it all out.
