Hi there 3rd Grade Families!I’m so excited to introduce myself as a 3rd grade teacher, here at Bryan Elementary!I graduated from The University of Idaho in 2011 and began teaching 5th grade in 2013. After teaching 5th grade for a wonderful 7 years, and earning my Masters in Reading (2020), I began a new adventure, teaching 3rd grade! I absolutely love it, and feel so blessed to be here each day.When I'm not teaching, I love spending time with my husband, Jesse, and my two labs (Koal and A.V.). We love hiking, fishing, and hunting. Our new favorite tradition is staying in historical lookout towers each summer!The learning adventures that we will be taking on through the third grade standards allow students to gain confidence in both academics and social skills. I acknowledge the fact that we all have different learning styles, strengths & weaknesses, and ways of communicating. Therefore, I feel grateful that we get to experience this year together and learn from each other!I’m a big fan of all that is Bryan Elementary. The family involvement and support that we have is amazing! If there is anything that you would like to talk to me about, please feel welcome to stop by, call or email. I enjoy parent volunteers, so if you are interested in seeing what these intelligent kiddos are up to in the classroom, send me your availability, and I will set you up with a time to help out.Looking forward to a great year!
