About Me

I was born and raised in Ada, Oklahoma. My mother was a registered nurse and my father owns and operates a furniture store in that very town. I received my Bachelors of Science in Education from East Central University and I currently hold teaching certifications in Oklahoma, Texas, and Utah.

 I began my teaching career in the great state of Texas at Barber Middle School in Dickinson, TX (south of Houston). During my time at BMS, I was the language arts lead teacher, 5th grade lead teacher (over 6 other teachers), helped create district language arts curriculum, and was a nominee for Teacher of the Year.  I later moved to the prestigious Barbara Bush Elementary located in Houston, TX. While teaching at Bush Elementary I team taught with 2 other teachers and collaborated on various lesson plans for our 3rd grade students. I took a brief break from teaching to stay home with my children. During this “break” I could not stay away from teaching others and worked part time for the YMCA in Austin, TX. While working at the YMCA I was the lead instructor for the 3-5 year old programs and assistant to the youth and family director. After working for the YMCA, my family moved back to Oklahoma were I was able to return to the classroom fulltime at Washington Elementary. While teaching at Washington, I wrote district curriculum maps, helped realign existing curriculum to Common Core Standards, was the campus technology liaison, spoke at Oklahoma Technology Association’s Annual Technology Conference and was a nominee for Teacher of the Year. In 2014, I moved to Salt Lake City and began teaching at Indian Hills Elementary in a 3rd grade classroom. 

It is hard for me to believe that the 2019-2020 school year is my 14th year teaching.  I’m excited to be teaching 4th grade and to have my three children here on campus..  I love spending time with my husband, Michael and our three children: Brody, Kirby, and Theo. I also enjoy fly fishing, CrossFit, cooking, and seeing all the wonderful activities Utah has to offer.
