This is my 14th year of teaching at Bushland. Currently, I teach 3rd grade math. It’s important to me that students understand why and how math works and not just memorize steps. I am passionate about teaching and believe it’s what I’m called to do. I understand that children learn best with engaging hands-on lessons which are fun and allow the students to actively participate. It’s very important to me that all the students in my classroom feel safe, loved, and valued. My goal is for students to leave my classroom with a love for math and school!
I have been married to my husband, Monte, for 25 years. We have been blessed with two awesome sons, Kyler (23) and Kendall (20). As a family, we enjoy worshiping at our church, camping, riding dirt bikes, hiking, skiing, and going to the lake. We love the outdoors, especially the mountains. I feel very blessed to be teaching at Bushland. It has been home to us for many years.
