I am very excited to be your child's Kindergarten teacher and spend this school year with them. I have been teaching for 26 years in the Coeur d'Alene School District. My career started at Ramsey Elementary as a reading teacher for 2 years, kindergarten teacher for 10 years, 1st grade teacher for 7 years and finally a third grade teacher for 2 years before made the move to Atlas Elementary 5 years ago. I really wanted to return to the kindergarten classroom and that's why I made the move to Atlas to become an Atlas Explorer.
I have lived in Coeur d'Alene since the late 70's and I attended Ramsey Elementary, Lakes Middle School and Coeur d'Alene High School. I am a graduate of Boise State University with my education degree and an endorsement in reading. My son is currently a senior attending Lake City High School and my daughter is currently a sophmore attending college in Boston. I had the opportunity to be both of their classroom teachers while they attended Ramsey and it was a wonderful experience.
Outside of school you will find me watching my son running cross country meets or track meets. If there is snow on the ground I like to catch up on my family scrapbooks and snuggle with our pets. You won't find me playing in the snow! I love to travel during school vacations so I will either be in Arizona visiting my parents or on a cruise ship. We like to take family cruises yearly and we have been to Jamaica, Belieze, Hondoras, Grand Cayman and all over Mexico.
I look forward to getting to know you and your children over this school year.
