It has been my pleasure to be in the CDA School District for 20 + years. The last several years have been in the first grade. I enjoy first graders because they are like budding plants ready to soak up the sunshine. My students come in as young 6 year olds and we go through a yearlong journey of gaining skills in the academics, social, and emotional aspects of their time with me.
My husband Mark and I are experiencing being empty nesters. Our daughter Hailey attends Florida A&M Law School in Orlando, FL. She is in her first year. Sydney is a senior attending Portland State University majoring in Accounting. Both girls are products of our wonderful CDA School District. Mark and I are active in sports.
I attended University of Idaho as an undergrad and Master of Education student, and continue with education classes through the university.
