I'm excited to be a new part of the Hawthorn family. Although I'm new to teaching at Hawthorn this year, I am not new to teaching. I've been teaching for several years now. I've taught at both traditional public schools and Charter schools. I have taught most grades, and now I'm happy to come back to teaching 4th grade. I love teaching all subjects especially history. I have been to a few different colleges and have enjoyed each! I started at Salt Lake Community College and have fond memories there! Then I went on to the University of Utah to obtain my Bachelor's. Afterwords, I received my Master's in Education at the University of Phoenix. Later on I received my ESL endorsement at Southern Utah University. Additionally, I have been on a few teaching sponsored trips (for additional college credit) to see in person the places that are important to us as Americans. I thoroughly enjoy board games and play them as much as I can. I look forward to teaching students some of those games this year!
