All About Me


 

I am a lucky person. J I have a wonderful husband and a beautiful son. All I have ever wanted to become was a teacher, it was my favorite game as a child. I graduated with my bachelor's in Elementary Education from UVSC now UVU, and my masters in Elementary Mathematics from SUU.

While growing up, math was never my favorite subject and I even gained  a severe case of "Math-itis". So it seemed only right that I got a Masters in something I wasn't in love with. With the help of wonderful teachers I not only got over my "Math-itis" but I found that I understood it and in fact loved it. I enjoy opening the world of math to each and everyone of my students. I dedicate every successful math lesson to Dr. Damon Bahr!

Reading has always been one of my favorite subjects and one of the things I love to do in my free time. I enjoy sharing this love with my students. I try to share literature that sparks the imagination and creates a desire to find out more.

I started teaching at the age of 21 for the Nebo School District. I have taught fourth grade, sixth grade, and first grade. I love to watch my students as they suddenly "get it".
