Teaching/Professional Experience: I have been teaching for a total of 8 years. Four of those years were in the traditional classroom and the last four have been online. I have taught a variety of classes but my focus has always been on health and biological/health sciences.
Educational Philosophy: Each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. "Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish on it's ability to climb a tree, it will live it's whole life believing it is stupid." ~Albert Einstein
Education: I attended Northwest Nazarene University from 1996-2002 and earned a B.S. in Nursing. It wasn't until I became a school nurse that I even considered becoming a teacher, but I love teaching! So from nursing I went back to college and received my teaching certificate from the University of Idaho in 2008!
Long Term Goal: My long term goal includes pursuing my masters degree and continuing a life full of learning new things!
Hobbies/Interests: In my free time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, playing board games, being outdoors, dancing, raising chickens, gardening and cleaning!
