• Happy New School Year! 

    This is my 14th year teaching and I am so excited to be here. Before teaching at Lakes, I taught for three years at Lakeland Jr. High in Rathdrum, and seven years at Inglewood Jr. High in Sammamish, WA (outside of Seattle). I received my Bachelors in Secondary Education in ELA and Special Education from the University of Idaho. I also have a Masters in Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment from Walden University and am a National Board Certified Teacher. I enjoy spending time with my family in my spare time, including my son, Camden (5.5) my daughter,  Charlotte (3) and my husband, Joey. Camden starts Kindergarten this year and I am so excited for us to embark on school adventures with him! When we are not hanging out at home, you can find us on our pontoon on Hayden Lake or on the golf course!

    Lakes is truly an amazing place to work. We are a true family and I'm so excited to get to know you and build our community. I'm looking forward to new adventures, new learning, and new thinking as we venture together in English Language Arts. Cheers to the 2018-2019 year!
