Degrees and Certifications:
This is my 26th year of teaching. I previously taught 2nd, 3rd, 5th, and 6th grades in Ohio for 20 years. Five years ago we moved to Utah to be near our grown children and grandchildren.
I received a Bachelor's and Master's Degree from The Ohio State University, I became a National Board Certified Teacher and a Master Teacher in Ohio before coming to Utah. I also have my Reading Endorsement and Certification in Teaching Students with Dyslexia.
I love teaching 1st grade because I get to see the excitement of students when they learn how to read. They grow so much during 1st grade both academically and in their confidence.
I truly believe it is a team effort between parents, students, and teachers to help students make the most of their education. I am looking forward to working together this year with everyone.
