I grew up in Southern Utah and graduated from Hurricane High School, Dixie College and SUU. I love spending time with my family. My husband and I have 5 fun and energetic children, 3 of them are married, and we have 3 cute little grandchildren. We enjoy exploring new places, road trips, picnics and BBQ’s, kayaking, riding ATV’s, camping, watching movies and playing games.
This is my third year at Coral Canyon and I’m super excited to be teaching our amazing Kindergarten students. This is my 12th year teaching and I’ve taught Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade and in the computer lab. I knew I wanted to teach when I was a young child and I’m still thrilled about doing it. I love seeing children excited about what they are learning and teaching them that they can do hard things.
I have been married to my husband Jeff for 25 years and we have 6 amazing sons! We also have 5 grandchildren! I love my family and we like to spend lots of time together traveling, camping, playing games and just being together! I graduated from Dixie State University with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. I also have an ESL endorsement. I have spent time in the OEK program in the district as well and I enjoy watching children progressing and thriving in school. I have been in all grades K-5 but Kindergarten is where my heart is. I love the age of kindergartners and how their minds are like little sponges, so eager to learn. I am excited to work with you and your child and look forward to getting to know you better. We will learn so many new and fun things! Please feel free to contact me whenever you need to, I have an open door policy at all times and I enjoy interacting and communicating with families just as much as my students.
