Favorite Interaction with a Student — On the last day of school, I received a handwritten letter from a student who HATED writing and who had struggled with cursive. This letter was written during class time on the last day of school. It was written in his neatest cursive. It was a page-and-a-half long; it detailed everything that I meant to him and how I how I had inspired him throughout that school year.
Curriculum Highlight — I genuinely love to teach grammar, literature and history. I also genuinely enjoy teaching math. More than anything, I love the rich class discussions that come throughout all areas of the curriculum as we apply 4-R’ing process while relating the principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Hobbies — I love reading (especially on a beach or on the side of the pool); I love photography, hiking, snowshoeing, and road biking.
Education — Bachelor of Science, Elementary Education, BYU.
What Do You Love About 6th Grade — I love the wonderful and thoughtful discussions I can have with my 11-12 year-olds! I learn so much from them!
Approach to Teaching — I love being able to teach the fullness of truth, not just secular truth, and certainly not secular opinion. I love having the opportunity to use the Spirit as I guide my students through researching, reasoning, relating and recording in their hearts and mind. I love being able to see students develop the ability of allowing the Spirit to guide their own reasoning and relating throughout all areas of the curriculum and throughout their own life experiences.
“No matter what else others remember about me, the 3 things I hope to leave in the hearts and minds of those who have entered my classroom are as follows:
- I know that Jesus Christ and God the Father live and love me and each one of us.
- The sincere love I have for every student, who has been under my stewardship, never ends. Every individual student has a permanent place in my heart.
- My sincere hope is that every student has left my classroom feeling loved.”
