This school year, I am celebrating my 27th year of teaching! I have taught every grade in elementary. This is my tenth year in Jordan District and my sixth year at Hayden Peak. My Master’s degree was earned in Gifted Education. I am very passionate about advocating for every child and empowering both children and parents with best teaching and learning practices. I particularly enjoy finding books of specific topics which match my students’ interests. I am fascinated by everything science! Personally, I have 8 delightful grandchildren. I love to treat my students, as well as all around me, the way I treat my own family.
