I graduated from BYU-Idaho with a bachelors degree in Early Childhood/ Special Education. Later I received my masters degree in Special Education with an emphasis in early childhood.

I love teaching preschool and I am passionate about helping young children with delays or disabilities and their families be more successful. I believe that every child has strengths and is capable of learning and that one of the most important things we can do to help young children and their families is to build and develop relationships. My philosophy is that young children learn best with hands on play based activities.

I love spending time with my family. I am married and have four children that I love spending time with. I love relaxing at home and watching movies. I also enjoy skiing, reading, traveling and spending time with my dog.

I graduated from BYU-Idaho with my degree in Early Childhood Special Education. After many experiences in high school working with young children and peers who had special needs, I knew I wanted to teach special education. Over the course of my education I fell in love with working with small children. I saw over and over again how much growth students make in these early years and knew that I wanted to help in that process. I truly believe that every child has the potential to learn and grow no matter their disability or circumstance. I believe that children learn best as they interact through play based learning.

I am from Rexburg, Idaho and love it here. I love traveling, reading, playing board games, cooking and being with my family.

I went back to school in my later years and decided on the major Early Childhood Special Education. It was not hard for me to choose the major that I did. I have an understanding with children who have a learning disability and other types of disabilities. I want to make a difference in a child's life. I want to give these children and their families hope, excitement, and understanding that it is okay to struggle, but when you learn you will never forget it. It is the neatest feeling to watch a child that struggles with a concept light up with excitement and wonder once they finally understand. To see that, is overwhelming. I want to be the teacher that can provide the strategies and tools to help them be successful, not only for children with disabilities, but for all children. I am so excited to teach and I am ready to have a great school year with your children.

 I am married and I have 4 children, whom I love dearly! I love to be outside, go camping, garden, and do anything I can with my family.

I graduated from BYU-Idaho with a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood/Special Education. Since volunteering in community-wide special education programs in high schoolI knew that I wanted to teach special education.  I fell in love with serving others and working hard to find solutions that would help individuals and families reach their goals. I love working with young children and believe that early intervention is so important. I want to make a difference in the lives of my students by helping them learn life skills and how to be life-long learners.

I love cooking, reading, painting, traveling and being with my family!

I attended Brigham Young University--Provo and majored in Elementary Education. I took a break and had 4 children and then returned to Brigham Young University—Idaho to finish my degree.

The earliest memories I have are of me playing house and school with my siblings. I knew very early on I wanted to be a teacher.  I also developed a growing desire to work with children who had special needs when volunteering at my children’s schools. After teaching kindergarten we added our fifth and last child. During my break from teaching while caring for my new baby, I decided to return to school to obtain a masters in Speech and Language Pathology at Idaho State University so I could better help and advocate for my youngest child’s special needs.

I love both teaching and providing speech and language services. I feel so fortunate to have this opportunity and look forward to working with children every day. When not working with children I enjoy researching teaching ideas, reading, skiing, hiking, rafting, and let’s be honest—long naps!
