Welcome to 5th Grade!
I am so honored to be apart of this amazing staff here at Pleasant View!
My family and I moved to Idaho last August from northern California. I was born and raised in a small town called Eureka. I am married to my husband, Chris, and we have two daughters, Josie (age 5) and Sydney (age 3). My husband and I wanted to offer our daughters a different life and try something new; we fell in love with the Boise area after visiting only one time and quickly transitioned to move here. We absolutely love living in Meridian. We are proud to be part of such a great community!
I graduated from Humboldt State University where I received both my BA and my teaching credential. As soon as I graduated, I landed my first teaching job in 1st grade. I spent three years teaching 1st grade at Loleta Elementary School before I moved to 4th grade at Washington Elementary. It was during this year that I began an online Master's program through Brandman University. As our enrollment fluctuated at Washington Elementary I moved up to 5th grade and I stayed there until I moved to Idaho. I spent last year teaching 3rd grade at Meridian Elementary. I am thrilled to be at Pleasant View this year and back in my favorite grade!
I absolutely LOVE teaching! My favorite subjects to teach are writing and math and sharing my love of reading with students. Building relationships with students and their families is what brings me the greatest joy as a teacher. I am anticipating a great year together!
We are Pronghorn strong!!!
