I was born in American Fork, Utah and into a family that loved to travel. This created for me a deep love of learning and independence at an early age. When I was in high school I moved to Elko, Nevada. I played in the Elko High School Band, Pep band and ran cross country. After graduation I moved to California, went to Heald College and achieved an AAS Degree in Accounting. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston, Idaho. I finished my internship in First Grade at Northside Elementary. During my internship, teaching became a full fledge passion, I was hooked, and knew that teaching would be a life career.
I am very excited for the opportunity to teach at EIAA. I love to promote learning in connection with real world application. My overall view is that the classroom needs to be a nurturing environment for students where they feel comfortable in a classroom community and challenged as individuals to reach their fullest potential. As a teacher it is my responsibility to create this environment and direction for each student where they have equal opportunity to thrive and grow.
I enjoy spending quality time with my husband and two sons. When I have spare time I enjoy getting out into the great outdoors, quilting and eating my favorite food, sushi.
