Hi and welcome to my website! I am so excited to be teaching at Elder Grove School. I may look familiar to many of you because I have worked at Elder Grove for over 10 years now. I began as a substitute teacher, then worked as a paraprofessional, and am now on my fifth year as a 2nd grade teacher.
I grew up on a farm and ranch outside of Rapid City, South Dakota where I rode horses, worked cattle, stacked square bales, and drove tractors and trucks around in fields. I still like going home to help with the branding and watch my kids share in some of those same experiences. After high school I attended Rocky Mountain College for two years then moved to Pocatello, Idaho to complete my degree in Elementary Education. Along the way I met and married my husband and we have 3 beautiful, amazing children that are quickly growing up on us! This fall I will have two kids in college and one in high school. My favorite thing to do is spend time with my family boating, floating rivers, hiking, and working in my flower and vegetable gardens.
