This is my first year at Hayden Peak. I have been a preschool teacher for fifteen years, and am happy to now be working with 5th graders! I love spending time with my family, especially at a lake, in the sun, boating. The library is “my happy place” and I love reading.

I LOVE English, Art History, reading the classics and award winning YA books. I enjoy teaching science. I love the heat and being near any body of water. I have 4 children, one goes to Hayden Peak.

I live in a log cabin in the mountains of Herriman with my husband (Kevin) and two kids (Faith and Jacob) and have a lot of adventures that keep us busy. My favorite thing to do is read, but I also like to draw and write. I have taught 2nd grade for 8 years and 4 grade for a year, and 5th grade for 5 years. I love teaching here at Hayden Peak Elementary.

This is my first year teaching at Hayden Peak. I have been teaching elementary grades for 5 years. I have taught 3rd and 4th grades previously. I love to travel, visit museums, watch movies, and anything to do with theatre. I have studied American Sign Language, and theatre arts with an emphasis in costume design before. I enjoy reading and learning, especially history and multicultural education.

This is my 22nd year of teaching, and my 16th year at Hayden Peak! Eight years of my teaching was done in resource or special education, and I earned a Masters in Special Education. My favorite subject to teach is math! I love seeing kids’ faces light up when they’ve suddenly “GOT” a new math concept. I’m a total book nerd and love to read. My favorite types of books to read are historical fiction. I also enjoy drawing, hiking, traveling, and relaxing with my family.
