Hi Hawthorn families!
I am so excited to be your 4th grade teacher this year!
I have been a teacher at Hawthorn Academy since the West Jordan campus opened. Before that, I taught in American Fork for four years. This is my 14th year as a teacher. I taught 3rd grade for five years, 4th grade for seven years, and middle school science for one year.
I went to college at Utah State University. I have a BS in psychology with a minor in human development. I have a MAEd degree from University of Phoenix in elementary education. I also have a middle level science endorsement.
When I am not teaching, I love to ski and hike. I grew up in Utah and love the beautiful mountains. I also enjoy reading, cooking, vacationing all over the world (I've been to 13 countries so far), and spending time with my family and friends.
I have 3 kids ages 24, 22, and 18. I also have an orange cat named Minerva. We live in an old house in Sugarhouse which is only cool because it has a rose garden.
My favorite food is cheese. My favorite color is teal. And my favorite animals are elephants and sock monkeys.
