A Little About Me:
This is my eleventh year of teaching and I can't imagine doing anything else! Previously, I taught at Skyway Elementary, 1st and 4th grade for three years each, and this will be my fifth year teaching 6th grade! I am excited to be here again this year! Prior to teaching I graduated in May 2009 from the University of Maine with a B.S. in elementary (K-8) education. Why Maine? I was there on a volleyball scholarship for four years and enjoyed my time on the east coast. I was born and raised here in Coeur d' Alene and am happy to be back! I also have earned my Educational Leadership (AKA Principal) degree from the University of Idaho in 2017. Besides teaching, I also am also certified to teach yoga and I continuously play and coach volleyball. My husband and I have been married for 3 years (in October). We have a 2 year old son, who keeps us busy and always brings a smile or giggle to our household and a daughter who joined our family in May 2019. We also have two wonderful 4 legged children, Koko, a 7 year old Pitbull/Lab mix, and Ruby, a 9 month old Golden Retirever puppy. I love to stay active and live a healthy lifestyle, and promote this in the classroom. In 2013, I became an Ironman for the first time, and was crazy enough to do it again in 2015! Both were amazing experiences and I also have competed in many other triathlon and non triathlon activities throughout the last few summers. I strongly encourage you to check Skyward consistently and please contact me (email is best) with any questions or concerns anytime. I look forward to spending the year with your student!
Some of my favorite things:
*the color purple
* anything active/ outdoors
* healthy food- I enjoy spending time in the kitchen cooking or baking
* Fall is my favorite season- the colors, foods, football and the start of another school year!
* Chips and dips are my weakness when attending any social events
* Country music - I would love to see George Straight in Concert
