Welcome to Kindergarten!
This is a wonderful time in your child's life and I am so honored to be a part of this truly amazing time! I have taught for over 27 years and I am confident you and your child will love Kindergarten as much as I do!
I am a native Montanan and graduated from Montana State University with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education. I loved being a teacher so much I wanted to learn innovative ways to teach children, so I obtained a Master of Arts in Teaching from Grand Canyon University. I have a Special Education Early Childhood Endorsement, Reading Endorsement, as well as English as a Second Language Endorsement. My teaching experience encompasses Preschool (self-contained and inclusion), Kindergarten, Pre-First (advance Kindergarten), and Reading Intervention (first through sixth grade). My love and passion is literacy and phonemic awareness. Nothing is more thrilling than witnessing children develop skills in reading and language and I look forward to sharing my passions with your child.
On a personal note, I have been married for over 30 years and we have two boys, Thor (Senior) and Krew (8th grader) who currently attend schools at Westwood and Mesa Academy. As a family we like to visit National Parks, take nature walks, kayaking and cooking. I also enjoy a good book and watching Netflix.
