Welcome to Room 12

    Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! I'm very excited to be a part of Heber Valley Elementary's community, and I look forward to an exciting new year teaching in the Dual Language Program. A transplant to Utah, I grew up on a sprawling horse farm on the East Coast. I roamed the rolling hills of a small town in upstate New York.
    All of my coursework was completed in New York at SUNY New Paltz, a teachers college 50 miles southwest of my hometown of Gallatin. I have a Bachelors in Elementary Education ('02), and a Masters in Early Childhood education ('07). I also hold a B-6 certificate issued by the NYS Department of Education as well as a Level 2 teaching certificate issued by the state of Utah. I have taught Preschool, Kindergarten, Grades 1 & 2, and middle school students, and many others over the years as a substitute teacher.
    There are many goals I have to make our year together a tremendous success. Part of that is making sure that our home-school connection is open and strong. Please stay connected through our Facebook page and newsletter. It's going to be another great year and I don't want you to miss any of it!
