****All About Me****

This is my 11th year at Mendoza and my 12th year of teaching!  I have taught both 1st & 2nd grade.  I enjoy working with younger children, and being involved in their reading process.  It is a joy to see a child learn new words and begin to read!  

I have a such an amazing family.  My husband, Josh and I have two amazing children! Braelyn will be in 1st grade at Mendoza and Easton, 3, will be starting his first year of preschool!  My kids are the joys of my life!  I love being a mommy and love seeing them grow and learn!

I am originally from North Dakota where I obtained my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education with a Kindergarten Endorsement.  I earned my Master's Degree in Elementary Education with a Reading Endorsement from Northern Arizona University.  I also obtained my ESL Endorsement.  It was a great experience and I enjoy getting to use the knowledge I gained with my first grade students!  

In my "free time" I enjoy being with my family and friends. We love to do many active things, as well as, relax and hang out! My favorite things are to run, work-out, play with my kids, drink lots of Starbucks, go out to eat, and watch/rent many movies! 

I am excited for a fun-filled year with lots of learning & growing!
