"The best part about being a teacher is that it matters. The hardest part about being a teacher is that it matters every day." Todd Whitaker
I have been teaching since 2004. I taught 3rd grade for 16 years, and now I am currently teaching 2nd graders. My students are rockstars! They light up my life with their joy and enthusiasm for learning. Every day is an adventure in our classroom, and I feel like I have the best job in the world. My students make me laugh, keep me up at night when I worry about them, and always make my day. I am committed to educating students at their level, to loving my students no matter what, and to making learning engaging.
I graduated from NNU (Northwest Nazarene University), and I'm currently working on my Gifted and Talented endorsement. I have one son who is the joy of my life. We enjoy outdoor adventures, games, and reading together.
