I am so excited to have you in my class this year! You have a lot to look forward to in first grade! Most of all, you will practice your reading, reading, reading. Learning to read opens up a whole new world of fun and new facts. We will also master your basic math facts and strategies and write lots of fun stories. First grade, here we come!!
I have wanted to be a teacher since I was a little girl! My dream came true after I graduated from Brigham Young University with Bachelor's in Elementary Education in 2003. My husband, Shawn, and I moved to Arizona where I taught third grade until my twins, Carter and Madi, were born. I stayed home to raise my twins until 2014, which is when we moved back to Utah. I have now spent three years in Fifth Grade and three years in First Grade. I have loved every age group that I have taught!
I can’t wait to get to know all about YOU this school year! Before we meet, I’d like to share a few things about ME. First, I love to spend time in the sun! Over the summer, my family enjoys beach hopping, jumping on the trampoline, gardening, and swimming. Also, I adore all things sweet, especially chocolate and gummy bears. Finally, I am a musical person, so I have been known to write original songs and raps to help my students remember important topics. You had better get ready to get your groove on!
