I always wanted to be a teacher since I was in the second grade! I have been teaching at Hayden Peak Elementary for ten years. Before that I taught three years right out of college and then stayed home for 16 years to raise five children. I love spending time with my family, going on vacations and playing games together. I enjoy playing the piano, reading books and walking in the rain. I am an avid journal writer because I don’t want to forget anything. I always try to be positive and happy!
Hayden Peak has been my “home” for 19 years and I still love working and serving here! Before coming to Hayden Peak, I taught first grade for ten years at Oquirrh Elementary and Monte Vista Elementary. While here at Hayden Peak, I taught second grade for another twelve years, back to first grade for a couple of years and now I am teaching third grade! If you add it all up, it comes to 29 years in education!
I love to read, and spend time with my family! We like to take road trips to see different places. We enjoy making treats and settling down in the family room to watch one of our many favorite moviesI have a lot of fun decorating my house for every holiday with items I have sewn, painted, or simply couldn’t resist from the store! I have two playful dogs that I spoil and adore!
I have been teaching at Hayden Peak for 9 years. I have a Masters Degree in Early Childhood, a ESL Endorsement, and I am currently working on my Reading Endorsement. My husband and I have 4 children and 6 grandchildren. I love the mountains, the beach, and animals.
