****All About Me****

This is my 12th year at Mendoza and my 13th 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 2nd grade at Mendoza and Easton, 4, will be starting 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!
