I am from American Fork, Utah. After I graduated high school, I moved to Dallas, Texas for a year and a half where I met my husband, and I loved it there! I moved to St. George in 2016 right after I got married. I graduated from Dixie State University this last year with my Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education along with an ESL endorsement. I love hiking, reading, playing with my dog, camping, and of course, teaching!! I am so excited to teach kindergarten this year, it’s going to be a good one!
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 second year at Coral Canyon and I’m super excited to be teaching our amazing Kindergarten students. This is my 13th 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.
