Twin Falls Teacher of the Month: December
I graduated high school from Bishop Kelly HS, graduated from College of Idaho in 2004, Student taught in 2005 and received my Masters from Walden University in 2014. This is my 14th year teaching.
I taught 1 year of 1st grade, 8 years of 6th grade (both of those were in Boise School District @ Garfield Elementary) then 5 years in 2nd for TFSD (2 @ Perrine and 3 @ Pillar). I teach because of my 1st grade teacher. She made me love learning and I always knew that this is what I was meant to do. I hope that I can have the same impact on the students I teach. By building strong, trusting relationships with my students, they feel confident to make mistakes, and try even if they may make a mistake. Education is all about the love of learning and I hope my students strive to learn something new each day.
I’ve been married to my husband Sean for 14 years. We have one child, Jack, who is 2. Life is good!
