Getting to Know Me: I grew up in Preston Idaho, and loved every minute of it! I am a country girl at heart, and love to camp and ride four wheelers any chance I get. I have a wonderful husband named Chris, and two daughters named Heidi and Hannah. 

I got my degree in early childhood education at UNLV, and have been teaching kindergarten at Coral Canyon for 10 years. I love my job, and love my students even more.

Getting to Know Me: I have lived in Texas, Montana, California, Wisconsin, Wyoming and Nebraska. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE teaching at Coral Canyon! I think it is the best school in the district!!! (Of course, I’m not biased! :o)) In the past, I’ve taught 2nd grade, Reading Recovery, Interventions and 1st grade. I’ve also worked as a co-staff developer for one year. I have an ESL and a Reading endorsement and I’m working on my K-3/Early Childhood endorsement right now.

My husband and I enjoy swimming, hiking, reading, watching movies and going out to eat together when we have free time. My husband works at Dixie State University as an adjunct professor teaching geography. I have 5 grown children and 22 living grandchildren with a granddaughter and a grandson who have died.

I’m excited to be on the Kindergarten Team. I love kindergarten students! They are excited to be in school and to be learning so many things. This is a new experience for me and I’m learning lots of new things from them as well!

Getting to Know Me: I grew up in Hurricane, Utah, attended Dixie College for 2 years and then graduated from Utah State University with a Bachelor Degree in Elementary Education and Early Childhood.  I taught an Academic Preschool, Happy Day Preschool in Hurricane, for 15 years, then graduated to Kindergarten.  This is my 6th year of teaching Kindergarten and I love it!!!! It is wonderful to guide young minds who are so interested and eager to learn.  My wonderful husband and I have 11 children (2 girls and 9 boys!) between us and 3 fun grandchildren. We have cats for pets and raise bunnies and bees in our backyard.  My family loves the outdoors.  We like to hike and camp and go four-wheeling.  We also like to pretend we are farmers and we own a tractor that we think is awesome. I am very excited to be a part of the awesome Kindergarten Team at Coral Canyon and am looking forward to a great year.
