I love teaching art at Atlas Elementary and Borah Elementary. My favorite thing is building kids' confidence to try new things and step outside their comfort zones. So many kids are afraid that they can't do art and are afraid to try. My motto is "Try your best." Everyone is an artist and everyone's art is different. I want kids to enjoy art and to appreciate what it has to offer.
My husband and I have three kids and many animals on our small farm. I love raising my kids in a place that has so much to offer. We have been involved in many activities around the community, including Little League, American Legion, 4-H, Pony Club, Skeet and Trap, and Boy Scouts, to name just a few. I currently have a son at BSU, another at Coeur d'Alene High School, and a daughter at Canfield Middle School. I love being in elementary schools, where I can help nurture a love for learning and help our younger students gain confidence in whatever they pursue.
