Degrees and Certifications:
I currently live in Dubois, Idaho. I am invested in our community because it is my home. I want to see our students excel in school so they can be productive citizens when they are out of school. I have taught school in Idaho Falls School District, Bonneville School District, Nebo School District, and Clark County School District. Each district has been a positive experience and I have learned so much from each. I have been teaching school for 37 years. I have taught 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 7th English, 8th English, and 9th Reading. I am currently teaching a 3rd-4th grade combination. Teaching has been the joy of my life. I love seeing how much the students have grown from the beginning of the year. I have also held many community and school district positions: PTO President, Negotiation Board, Teacher Association President, School Representative, Cheer Leader Advisor, and others. I have had several student teachers and I love training others to be effective teachers. I hope to leave a legacy for others to follow as they pursue a career in education.
