Getting to Know Me: I was born and raised ‘on the range’ in southwest Kansas. My elementary school had about 35 total students in grades kindergarten through fifth and there were only 4 teachers in the school. I moved to southern Utah when I was a sophomore in high school. I graduated Class of 1994 from Hurricane High School. Go Tigers! I am the mother of two teenagers. (I know, I don’t look old enough to have teenagers, do I!) My son Cody is 17 and loves to play sports. My daughter Kelli is 16 and she loves to dance and play volleyball. They also attended Coral Canyon Elementary. My favorite part about teaching is guiding and allowing my students to be critical thinkers. I love the phrase “Teach a man to fish and he will be fed for life.” However, learning should also be FUN and I am constantly looking for ways to keep school, lesson plans and activities FUN! I want students to be able to stretch their minds to learn anything and everything they can.
Most of my free time is spent following my own children to their activities and having family gatherings. I am the 3rd of 10 children so there are many of us and we always have an activity going on somewhere. Family is very important to me and I tell students they have simply been added into my already big family!
Here’s to another FABULOUS year at Coral Canyon! Go COLTS!

Position: Speech Therapist
Classroom #: Hall between the office and the library.
Getting to Know Me: I've been a speech therapist for the last 23 years. I love helping children become confident and competent in speaking and writing. I like to learn about words, where they come from and how to use them. I also like hiking in our beautiful world, reading good books, and making my own books that pop up and have secret compartments. I enjoy meeting and learning about new people. In the summer have fun taking my grandchildren to the pool and traveling to new places.
