PE Teacher & Para
I grew up in Sugar City, yes I was a Digger. My husband and I have 4 children and 10 grandchildren . My husband farms. We love to go 4 wheeling and hang out with our grandkids. My oldest has cerebral palsy and lives at home with us. I believe that every child can learn it just takes some longer than others. My favorite thing about my job is when a child's light comes on and they get it.
I grew up in beautiful Star Valley, Wyoming. From my dad, I developed a passion for athletics and being active. My mom helped instill in me a great love for music and reading. My incredibly kind, patient husband, Ryan, is a hard-working man of many talents. After our schooling at Ricks College and Utah State University we returned to his roots in the Rexburg area. We have four children, three of whom attended Hibbard Elementary. I feel privileged to be able to work with the wonderful students, teachers, and staff at Hibbard!
