Welcome to 3rd Grade! 

I am thrilled to have the opportunity to teach 3rd Grade here at Highland Arts Elementary! After spending the last two years teaching 4th Grade, I am excited to make the slide down to 3rd! This will be my third year teaching, but first year at Highland Arts. I graduated cum laude from Brigham Young University-Idaho, with a degree in Elementary Education and immediately got to work!

I grew up in Sacramento, California and still love to fly off to my hometown to see family when I can. Growing up, my siblings and I were our own version of the Von Trapp Family. We each played an instrument and often performed together. My instrument of choice was the harp, and still is. When I wasn't practicing, I could often be seen sketching portraits or singing my favorite songs over again until begged to stop. These habits have remained unbroken, so as you can imagine, when I found Highland Arts, I found home.

In my classroom, I have the highest hopes that students will see the beauty in learning, be quizzical and thoughtful, and leave every day with a true sense of self-worth and accomplishment. I look forward to a wonderful year in 3rd Grade!
