I am originally from Washington State, and am now a happy resident of Utah. I studied Elementary Education at Brigham Young University, with a minor in Spanish Dual Language Immersion. I absolutely love education and am so excited to begin my first year of teaching. When I am not planning lessons and working on my classroom, I love to play sports and exercise, dance, play piano, go hiking and enjoy the outdoors, and spend time with my husband, Jacob. I am also bilingual and biliterate, speaking both English and Spanish fluently. I highly value language study and recognize its benefits in the world today.
