When I was younger I daydreamed of becoming a teacher. It seems there has always been a piece of my heart pulled towards working with children. It is inspiring to work within a system that encourages the next generation to develop their skills and chase their dreams. My path in education began in a second grade class and then led me to Woodland where I currently teach 6th grade Language Arts and PE. Outside of school, I enjoy being outdoors and spending time with my family and friends. We live in a beautiful area that has so much to offer. I believe in striving to live each moment to the fullest and never taking anything for granted. I look forward to the experiences this new school year will bring and please don't ever hesitate to reach out to me with your questions or concerns.
