I hold a Bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education from Idaho State University in Pocatello, Idaho. I have been a part of the Early Childhood community in different aspects for the past 20 years. I am passionate about working with young children, watching them grow and develop and continue on to Kindergarten and beyond. Over my career I have been a part of many different aspects of the Early Childhood world. I have taught infants, toddlers, preschool, Pre-K and Kindergarten. When I lived in Ohio I was an Administator of a Day Care center for about 10 years. For the past 3 years I have working here in the Early Childhood program through Poudre School discticts, first as a Parraprofessional and then was hired as an Early Childhood Teacher at Beattie Elementary.
This year will be my second year at Beattie Elementary in the Early Childhood program! I teach two sessions each day Monday-Thursday and I am so excited about the opportunities that I will have as I get to know the staff, families, and students that make Beattie amazing! The school and administration is so welcoming and inviting to each person that comes into the school. I have felt well loved and welcomed over the past year and can not wait to see what this year will bring.
I love reading, anything Disney, watching movies, and spending time with my family. I aslo enjoy volunteering at my daughers school. This year, I am working with the Fossil Ridge Band Boosters since my daughter is a part of the Band program at Fossil Ridge. My best hobby is anything related to my family. We enjoy going on Disney Cruises, traveling, and seeing new sites as well as spending time together. If anyone asks me what brings me happiness and joy, the answer will always be spending time with my family.
