This is my 11th year teaching third grade and my third year at Hayden Peak. When I’m not scouring Pinterest for fun ideas to use in my classroom, I enjoy spending time with my family enjoying the outdoors. I also love to travel every chance I get.
I graduated from BYU with a degree in Elementary Education. This is my 16th year of teaching. I have been teaching here at Hayden Peak for all 16 years – Go Hawks! I am currently teaching 3rd grade, but I have also taught 1st grade and 2nd grade. In my spare time I enjoy going for walks, baking tasty treats, playing the piano, and reading a good book.
I have been teaching at Hayden Peak since 2006. First, teaching PE, then second grade, and now third, with a few years off in between. When I’m not teaching I’m working on house projects or you can find me in the mountains with my dog Bear. We like to trail run, go hiking, and occasionally take a road trip to the beach. But the real adventure is teaching. The good times, bad times and especially the fun times! I love what I do and love spending time with such amazing, smart kids!
I was born and raised in Southern California and I am the oldest of four.
I went to Brigham Young University and majored in Early Childhood Education. I was so excited to graduate and start teaching. This is my 20th year teaching third grade. WOW! Time flies when you are having fun! I love teaching third grade. When I have free time I like to read and watch movies with my family and friends. I also love to travel. My favorite people to travel with are my 2 sisters. We’ve traveled to Hong Kong, Paris, and Rome together. My most memorable trip has been a once in a lifetime visit to China. I even rode an alpine slide down from the Great Wall of China. I beat both my sisters and came in first place! It was awesome!
I am so excited to be teaching third grade for the first time! I love learning and sharing my enthusiasm for it with my students is the best part of teaching. I taught first grade in Jordan District for 5 years and Meet the Masters at Hayden Peak for 3 years. When school is out you’ll find me in the sunshine playing games, reading, exploring with my boys or working with my husband on his food trucks.
