This is my 9th year of teaching here at orchard Hills.  I teach first grade and love it.

I grew up in Las Vegas and have lived in Utah since I was 21. The last 14 have been in Nephi.

I love my family. I am happily married to Ray. I have 4 beautiful, adult children (2 boys and 2girls,) who are married to wonderful people and I have been blessed with 12 gorgeous grandchildren.  I love to be in the water. I love swimming and the outdoors. I love watching movies, cooking, and playing with my grandkids.  I love to be around children, gardening,  and any kind of flowers. Oh, yes, and I really love chocolate!
