    Hello Students and Parents! 

    I am thrilled to be teaching 4th grade at Midway Elementary! I was born and raised in the Midwest, but have been teaching here in Utah for the past 15 years or so. I received a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education from BYU, and later went on to earn a Masters of Arts in Writing Children's Literature from Kingston University in London. I'd always wanted to be a teacher, but I found a deeper love of learning as I've been able to work with all kinds of unique personalities and learning styles in my classroom. One of my favorite challenges as a teacher is taking subject matter that once frustrated me as a kid, and making it accessible, understandable, and even enjoyable to a wide range of learners.  In addition to teaching my amazing students, I also love to sing, participate in theater programs, read, bake, and play with my family!
