I’ve taught school in Madison District for 30 years, give or take a day or two. I grew up in Rexburg, attending Adams Elementary School fourth through sixth grades. After graduating from Ricks College and Brigham Young University-Provo, I was excited to return to Adams School as a teacher. I taught third grade for ten years before moving up to fourth grade. I love history and so was excited to able to be teaching Idaho History as well as “Readin’, Writin’, and ‘Rithmetic.”
Five years ago, I joined the staff here at South Fork, again as a fourth grade teacher. It has been a delight to get to know my community from a new point of view. I’ve also loved learning the history of this area, settled by hardy farmers whose families worked together then to build many small communities. These once tiny places have now melded into a larger, all encompassing community and the amazing student population here at South Fork reflect many family heritages.
My husband and I have lived in the Lyman/Archer area most all of our married lives. We raised gardens, chickens, and four awesome kids who have in turn given us fourteen incredible grandkids.
When not teaching school, I might be found reading, writing, or more likely, painting. I’m still trying to decide whether I like oil or watercolor better. Time will tell.
