B.S. Child Development and Family Relations, University of Idaho
I am a native Idahoan. I grew up in Buhl Idaho. Outside of school I love to craft and garden. I have three wonderful children Josh, Hallie, and Rieder, and a grandchild, Lincoln. Even as early as second grade, I developed a strong desire to become a teacher. It was my love of reading the “Dick and Jane” books, that inspired me to help others learn to read. I worked for six years as a paraprofessional for the Meridian School District supporting students with special needs in the classroom environment. In 2012, I graduated from the University of Idaho with a B.S. in Child Development and Family Relations. I was a preschool teacher at The Community Childcare Center in Pullman for three years and decided that I wanted to go back to a school environment teaching children skills to be lifelong learners. This is my fourth year as a Title One Teacher at Palouse Prairie Charter School. It is the proud smiles and celebrations of learning that make it all worthwhile.
