Welcome! This is my seventh year at Mountain View Elementary and my tenth year teaching. I absolutely love being a part of this amazing learning community. I am a graduate of the University of South Dakota where I achieved my Bachelor's degree in elementary education as well as my Master's degree in K-12 reading instruction. Additionally, I am the mom of a busy four-year old daughter, Emma, and 7month old son, Graer, who fill me with joy and keep me on my toes. I enjoy playing outside and watching Emma and Graer grow and explore the world around them. I absolutely love teaching and am so excited to have the opportunity to get to know your child and support he or she in reaching his or her greatest potential. In my classroom, we love to have fun in a safe environment where we all feel loved, important, challenged, and supported to take risks. We work hard learning to be a kind, respectful community of learners who uses each others' strengths to help everyone learn, stretch, and achieve success. I cannot wait for the amazing year ahead of us!
