I have been a teacher with the Twin Falls School District since 1987. That seems like such a long time but I think that being around such wonderful kids every day makes me feel younger each year! I have taught 5th grade, 3rd grade, science block, and now I’m working with English Language Learners (ELL). Besides being a teacher, I also love to learn. I earned my Associate’s Degree from CSI, my Bachelor’s Degree from ISU and my Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in helping English Language Learners from BSU. Every day my students teach me about our world, cultures, and language. Together we learn about living in America, our English language, and being compassionate human beings. My favorite quote to live by is, “Students don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.” – Theodore Roosevelt

I moved to Twin Falls in 2015, from the small rural town of McGill, Nevada where I taught for 21 years. I spent 13 years teaching and working in the field of Early Childhood Education. In 2007 I began my elementary teaching career where I taught Kindergarten, 2nd, 4th and Special Education. When I am not teaching I spend my leisurely time swimming, writing, going to hockey games, and spending time with my family. I am loving life here in Idaho and look forward to many more years of teaching at Morningside.
I was born and raised in a small town in northwest Montana with the Flathead Lake as my back yard. I went to college at Faith Baptist Bible College and studied Secretarial Science for two years. I married the man of my dreams when I was 22, and had 2 kids-a boy and a girl, we lived in Missoula, Montana. In 2002, we moved to Twin Falls, kicking and screaming, but now we wouldn’t have had it any other way. I started working for the TF school district as a sub in 2002, then at Morningside as a playground aide in 2003. In 2008, I got my dream job as secretary at Morningside Elementary, where I still am today.
I’m a native of Twin Falls and love to teach.

I have had the privilege of teaching 1st grade at Morningside Elementary for the past five years. This year I have embarked on a new adventure. I am now teaching 3rd grade. Although I loved teaching 1st grade, I find I am enjoying teaching 3rd grade as well. I am happily married with four grown children and two young grandsons ages 2 and 5. My favorite seasons are autumn and spring. My hobbies include, cooking, reading, and horseback riding.
