I'm glad you have stopped by! I have been teaching at Borah for 18 years and I love this school!! I have taught several different areas, including Title 1, second grade and first grade. I have been teaching first grade for 11 years and it is dear to my heart. I have an MBA from Monterey Institute of International Studies and my elementary education credential is from University of Idaho. I have been married to Dave for 25 years. We have 2 very active boys; Nicholas who is 20 and Parker who is 15. Nicholas is in the Air Force and Parker is beginning high school at Coeur d'Alene High School. We have a black cat, named Prince Charmin. We have a very active house! As a family, we like to go camping and dirtbike/atv riding. I LOVE to read!! I also enjoy being outside, scrapbooking, and cooking. Welcome to a fun year in first grade!
