2nd Grade Team
I grew up in Riverton, Utah. I graduated from Utah State University with my bachelors in Elementary Education. After graduating I married my high school sweetheart and moved down to St. George to teach first grade here at Coral Canyon Elementary. I have taught first and second grade and have an English as a Second Language Endorsement. I have a passion for learning and love expanding upon my education. I have a dog named Teddy and I love to mountain bike, hike, kayak, travel, paint, and most importantly teach and share my love for learning!
My fifth grade teacher Mr. Eberhard was the first to spark my interests in learning about Roald Dahl books, Norman Rockwell art, and other interesting school topics. He inspired me to go to college and become a teacher. I hope that I can be a positive influence on the minds of generations to come as well. I have taught at Coral Canyon since 2009. I have been privileged to teach kids in fifth grade, first and second. I currently teach second grade and I love it!
I grew up in Western Kansas and Southern California. I have a BA from the University of California San Diego, a M.Ed. from Holy Names College in Oakland, CA, and endorsements in ESL, Gifted/Talented, Elementary Mathematics, and Educational Technology. I was at Coral Canyon Elementary when it opened in 2006 and I adore this school! I’ve been a learner my whole life and a teacher of some kind for over half of it. I love teaching kids to become readers, mathematicians, scientists, and thinkers!
