Hi! I am super excited to be teaching for a fifth year in fifth grade at Brinton Elementary! I moved to Mesa in September of 2014 to start the amazing fifth grade adventure. Before that, I lived and worked in classrooms in Meridian, Idaho.
I was born and raised in the Boise, Idaho area. I have 4 sisters and 2 brothers. Some still live in Idaho; others live in Arizona, New Hampshire, and Nebraska. I went back to school at Boise State University in 2006 to become a teacher. It was a long journey. Along the way, I spent time in Dallas, TX on a mission for my church, worked full time as a special education assistant, and finally graduated in December of 2013 with a degree in Special Education as well as General Education.
Since moving to Arizona, I have become involved in a non-profit makerspace/hackerspace in downtown Mesa called HeatSync Labs where I am currently the president. I have built and learned how to use a 3d printer, love soldering, and have dabbled in welding and electronics. My most current hobby has been sewing "Ms. Frizzle" skirts and dresses to wear while I teach Science.
I have enjoyed the mountains, birds, and sunsets of Arizona. I am looking forward to many more years of teaching and experiencing life here in Arizona.
