Being a teacher is an amazing and exciting job. I love teaching! I have been teaching for 30 years at different levels including adult ed, high school, junior high and at-home tutoring. I even taught piano lessons for a period of time. I received my education from Brigham Young University majoring in Business Teaching with an emphasis in Information Management.

Most of my teaching has focused on helping students learn how to use computers productively. I have also worked with at-risk students, students recovering from in-patient treatment, and honor students. At Mountain Ridge I have taught a variety of business classes plus have the opportunity to work with the National Junior Honor Society.

I am married to another junior high school teacher which makes our evening conversations very interesting. I am the mother of 3 children and grandmother to two beautiful grandchildren. I love spending time with my family.

In my free time I enjoy reading, playing the piano, hiking, camping and doing service. I recently took up soap making but had to take a break when I realized it takes a lot less time to make soap than it does to use all that soap. My favorite food is Mexican but really I'll eat anything. My favorite color changes frequently, but my favorite treat is always chocolate covered cinnamon bears. A favorite family pastime is playing board games.
