Hi and welcome to my website! I am so excited to be teaching at Elder Grove School. I may look familiar to many of you because I have worked at Elder Grove for 13 years now. I began as a substitute teacher, then worked as a paraprofessional, and am now on my seventh year as a 2nd grade teacher.
I grew up on a farm and ranch outside of Rapid City, South Dakota where I rode horses, worked cattle, stacked square bales, and drove tractors and trucks around in fields. I still like going home to help with the branding and watch my kids share in some of those same experiences. After high school I attended Rocky Mountain College for two years then moved to Pocatello, Idaho to complete my degree in Elementary Education. Along the way I met and married my husband and we have 3 beautiful, amazing children that are quickly growing up on us! This fall I will have three kids in college. My favorite thing to do is spend time with my family boating, floating rivers, hiking, and working in my flower and vegetable gardens.
