My favorite quote is "be a rainbow in someone else's cloud" [Maya Angelou]. I like this quote because i think everyone can relate to it: kids and adults. Being kind can help brighten someone's day.
I graduated from Western Michigan University with a Bachelor's degree in Education and an Early Childhood Endorsement. After graduating I taught at a Pre-K school in Shanghai, China for 5 months before moving to Arizona. This will be my 12th year teaching and I am very excited to be teaching 3rd grade at Ridgeline this year! I became a teacher because I wanted to share my love of learning with others as well as make a positive impact in the school and community I work in.
When I am not working I enjoy spending time outside riding my horses, gardening and hiking.
