This will be my second year teaching at Orchard Knob Elementary. Last year I taught 1st Grade as well! I also completed 5 weeks of field work at Orchard Knob in a 3rd grade class in 2013 and then completed the duration of my student-teaching experience at Orchard Knob in a 1st grade class during the 2014-2015 school year.

All About Me!

"The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires". This is the goal for my career, to be a teacher that demonstrates and inspires each student that walks through my classroom door. 

Being a teacher is not just a job, it is a calling, a passion, and a gift. I grew up with a parent that was a teacher and knew from an early age that my calling was teaching. However, I did not answer that calling right away and went to school to further a career in dental hygiene. Thankfully, I realized quickly that was not what I desired to do for the rest of my life. Soon after that realization I entered into an education program and reconnected with a high school friend who become my husband. We spend most of our time with friends and family, serving in our community, and enjoying coffee!
