One of my greatest passions in life is teaching! Since I started teaching in 2011, I have found that I actually end up being the “learner” in our classroom. Students bring knowledge and perspective to our collaborative and flexible learning environment. My goal is to empower students to own their learning. Each individual has more potential than we realize, so I have high expectations for my students. We focus on Growth Mindset, and learn that our “failures” are actually stepping-stones to greatness if we are striving to overcome them.
I have lived in Idaho since 2006, and I try to take advantage of our beautiful surroundings as much as I can! If I’m not teaching, I’m spending time with my husband and children. We enjoy camping, hiking, fishing, snowshoeing, canoeing, and anything else that gets us outdoors. I also play the violin and have a deep appreciation for the arts.
