I graduated from the University of Idaho December 1999. I started working for the Clark County School District in Dubois teaching jr. high math and some high school classes. I have taught 4, 5, Title 1, was the testing coordinator and was the head teacher. I then took two years off to be a mom to my two beautiful children, Trapper (6) and Madison (4). I started teaching again in 2009 at Hillview. I loved the class I had last year. I really appreciated the involvement of the parents. Hillview has great kids and I can't wait for this school year.
Trapper put a sign on our front door that read, "petting zoo $10". He isn't far off. We have 2 dogs, 2 chinchillas, 2 rabbits, and a guinea pig. We also have 1 fish, but I can't seem to keep fish alive. This would actually be our 7th fish.
I love teaching. I love the interaction and watching my kids grow and learn. I say my kids because that's what they become. I am excited about their ah-ha moments when they get something, I am sad when their heart has been hurt by another, and I do whatever I can when I see them struggling.
