Hello Bryan Bear first grade families!
I have enjoyed being a Bryan bear for the last 9 years. I love first grade and all that comes with it.  In first grade we become better readers, writers, mathematicians, thinkers, citizens and much more.  The growth experienced in first grade is amazing!  One of our class mindsets is, "I may not yet, but someday I will".  Together we will!  I value our partnership in educating your child.  You are their first and most important teacher.
A little about me.
I love teaching and knew from a young age that I wanted to be a teacher. I have taught every grade level at the elementary level.  I have taught in numerous school districts in Idaho.  I love Coeur d 'Alene and have lived here for over 20 years. I love living in downtown Cda and love the beauty of northern Idaho.  I was raised in southern Idaho and I am fortunate to have my extended family living here now. I have a son and a daughter and I enjoy any time I can spend with them. My daughter is in college at the University of Idaho and my son lives in town.  We enjoy camping, family games and lake time. 
I always look forward to introducing my students to my family. My son and both my mom and dad volunteer weekly in our classroom.
