Parent Observer Tutorials:
As mentioned before, I am so excited to be teaching you this year! I grew up in Bountiful, Utah, in a home with five sisters and one brother who were ALL my very best friends. Together we enjoyed boating, camping, playing card games and board games, laughing, and doing pretty much anything together. From a very young age I loved to cook. I have so many fond memories of sitting up at the counter helping and watching my mom cook. I'll ALWAYS remember family dinner together around the table, enjoying good food, and quality time together. I sure do love food! Some of my other passions include sewing, cooking, music, water skiing, exploring, and most importantly spending quality time with good people.
I also love to play the piano, sing, and all the way until college I loved to dance! Once I graduated High School, I attended Brigham Young University (GO COUGS!) and jumped right in to studying Family and Consumer Sciences! I always knew I wanted to be a teacher and what better subject than the one with all the thins I love! I met my husband, Gavin, in High School and we just had our first wedding anniversary. He is currently attending BYU, studying Accounting. Together, Gavin and I love to ride horses, camp, fish, paint, cook, and enjoy all the time we can get outside. I just graduated last year (2020), and I am excited for this next journey. I can't wait to learn together.
