Teaching Experience: I have taught at the middle school level for the last 8 years. I taught English as a Second Language, Spanish, and a few Physical Education classes.
Teaching Philosophy: I strongly believe that a teacher should focus on a student's strengths and background knowledge and use them as tools to build and connect to future learning.
Education: I graduated from Northwest Nazarene University with a degree in Kinesiology Education with a second teaching field in Spanish. I went on to get my Masters degree in Bilingual Education from Boise State University.
Hobbies/Interesting Facts: I enjoy playing sports such as tennis, volleyball and basketball. I love spending time with two of my favorite people in the world; my wonderful husband and son. I also enjoy traveling. A couple of years ago, I took a month long trip to Europe with my husband and I can't wait to go back some day!
