Degrees and Certifications:
I often hear adults share with me that 5th grade was one of the most impactful and memorable grades of their elementary experience. Having the chance to help create these memories for students is a truly special opportunity. My focus is to prepare students for the diverse and ever-changing world we live in by helping them to develop critical thinking skills and embrace a growth mindset.
I was born in northern California and originally moved to Boise to complete my degree in education with an emphasis on literacy reading and writing at Boise State University about ten years ago. While at Boise state I also studied art and have helped teach and develop art curriculum for Boise state and Anser Charter School.
Outside of teaching I work as a muralist creating large scale art for various art festivals and businesses. My fiancé and I enjoy spending our free time in the outdoors exploring Idaho from fly fishing to back country skiing we love doing anything that gets us outside in the elements.
