Getting to Know Me: I grew up in Western Kansas and Southern California.  I have a BA from the University of California San Diego, a M.Ed. from Holy Names College in Oakland, CA, and endorsements in ESL, Gifted/Talented, Elementary Mathematics, and Educational Technology. I was at Coral Canyon Elementary when it opened in 2006 and I adore this school! As I kid I loved swimming, camping, and reading and hated running, broccoli, and meanies. I’ve been a learner my whole life and a teacher of some kind for over half of it.  These days I still like swimming, camping, and reading but also now do a lot of cooking and Web surfing. First grade is my FAVORITE of all the grades I’ve taught!

Getting to Know Me: I was born in Las Vegas, Nevada and moved to St. George, Utah when I was 4 years old. I went to Dixie State High School where I played on the golf team and ran track. After graduating in 2008, I decided to stay local and attend Dixie State University. I graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education degree in 2013, and was hired at Coral Canyon Elementary.  This is my 5th year teaching and I love it!  I recently finished my Reading Endorsement from Utah Valley University along with my Masters Degree in Education from Southern Utah University.  I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 5 years now and we have 2 sweet dogs, Harley and Sophie. I love to hike, kayak, paddle board, swim, travel, craft, read, and of course, TEACH!
