I started my teaching career right here at Westview Elementary in the 2006 / 2007 school year. After doing a long-term-sub position in 2nd grade I was hired to stay on with that class and have been here ever since! Before getting my teaching license, I worked in broadcasting at a local television station. Years of staring at T.V. monitors left me extremely unfulfilled and I realized that teaching kids is my passion. I provide every child with rich and engaging lessons that support their academics and social well-being. As an elementary student, I struggled myself which has given me an empathy for children who need extra help in the classroom. I try to be very clear and give positive feedback to encourage my students to succeed! Because of my experiences in life, I believe with all my heart that EVERY child can learn and achieve their goals.
