Getting to Know Me: Fourth Grade Rocks! I especially enjoy teaching Science and Math but I love everything about school.  In the past I have taught first, kindergarten, and English as a second language.  I completed a Master in Education and an endorsement in Giftedness. I am also the school’s HAL (high ability learner) facilitator.  My hobbies include hiking, going to movies, enjoying my grandbabies, and working in SGMT community theatre.

Getting to Know Me: I really love teaching because of the students.  It’s amazing to see when they stretch themselves to the next level and achieve what they didn’t know they could achieve.  I have been at Coral Canyon since it opened in 2006.   I love being a part of this community.

Getting to Know Me: I attended the University of Utah and studied vocal performance. I was the Choir Director and Music Specialist at Washington Elementary before entering the Elementary Education program at Dixie State College. In 2010 I was hired as a SEE Apprentice Teacher at Coral Canyon Elementary and worked with Barbie Christensen. Coral Canyon is also where I completed my student teaching. I graduated in May 2011 from Dixie State College with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education with an ESL endorsement. I am the fourth generation of my family to enter the teaching profession. I love math, music, and language arts. I am excited to teach fourth grade. It’s going to be a wonderful school year!
