I have been teaching in the District since January of 1992. I have been a member of the Westview staff since October of 1994. I began my teaching here as a kindergarten teacher. I taught kindergarten for 4 years before moving into a 2nd grade position. I taught 2nd grade for 3 years and then taught 3rd grade for 2 years. I returned to 2nd grade where I am currently teaching. Westview is truly my home away from home. I am so happy to be a part of this wonderful community of parents, children, teachers and staff.
I believe that every child deserves the best education I can provide for them. I enjoy working with all types of learners and personalities. I run a calm and structured classroom, where the students are often the teachers. Making connections to my students and families is very important to me. I look forward to evry new year when I get to meet my new class and their families.
When I am not at school, I find JOY in my family! I am married and have 2 children of my own. Our children are grown now, but we have three pets that are our children at home. We have a dog, a cat and a turtle. I enjoy spending time with my family as much as possible. I also love to hike and camp in our beautiful mountains. Reading is definitely on my list of things I love to do.
