Welcome!  This is my 24th year teaching middle school! I teach 6th and 7th grade language arts. I am excited for an amazing school year with your children!  I love helping my students become better readers, writers, thinkers, and communicators.  I grew up in Moscow, Idaho, and graduated from the University of Idaho. I  taught at Lakes Middle School for 21 years, and this is my third year at Canfield.  My husband, Chad teaches 8th grade social studies at Woodland Middle School, and we have three children, ages 16, 13, and 8.  I enjoy reading, cooking, running, fitness, hiking, skiing, and spending time with friends and family. 
I look forward to meeting and working with you all this year.  Please feel free to contact me any time.   It is an honor and privilege to work with my students every
