I cannot wait to get back into the classroom and work with my students. Several years ago, when my youngest daughter entered kindergarten, I was spending many hours in her classroom. This is where I discovered my love of teaching. I returned to school and earned my teaching degree through The University of Phoenix. During this same time, I was hired to work as a kindergarten aid. I spent three years working with kindergartners and loving every minute of it.
I did my student teaching at Rose Creek Elementary, which is located in Riverton, Utah. I was assigned to work in second grade and found a place that I loved. I love working in second grade. My students over the past three years have been a joy. I look forward to getting to know my new students this year!
I am married to a wonderful man, Jeff. Together we have four awesome children, Brett, Jessica, Hope, and Mikell. My family means everything to me and I am so lucky to have had their support while I completed my education. As a family, we love to see plays and concerts, go camping, spend time playing games, and hanging out with extended family. I look forward to watching my family as they continue to grow. They bring me so much joy.
As for myself, I have many different things I enjoy doing. I love reading and listening to books. I usually have two - three books I am working on at a time. I enjoy crocheting, baking, trying new recipes for dinner, going to movies, and just being home with my family. Recently, I have discovered a love for painting and drawing. Lately, I have spent a lot of time being creative and find it very fun and relaxing.
