 I graduated from BYU. 

This is my 4th year teaching.  I taught two years in the younger grades and two in fifth grade.

 I grew up in Beaverton, Oregon.  Growing up, I was one of four children. Now, it's just me and my new husband in our little family!  We got married in January 2015 and are loving life!  

 My favorite things to do outside of school include: I enjoy going to the gym, biking around town, going out to dinner, and traveling around the country.

I love elephants!!
