Teaching is My Passion — My passion is teaching and always has been! I remember playing school as a child and thinking I would love to teach someday. I am grateful for wonderful teachers in my life that instilled a love of learning and were also great examples to me as I continued down the path in becoming a teacher. I was told that I had a gift and I appreciate them in helping me to see that blessing in my life.
Favorite Interaction with Student — I was teaching about a specific topic and a student raised their hand and brought up an example from the scriptures that they learned from home and applied to their learning at school. This has happen several times throughout the year where the lessons I prepared go in a totally different direction. It’s at times like this that I know the spirit is present and true learning takes place. I have loved those special moments where we are able to share as we learn from each other. Teaching and learning are eternal principles, and I am so grateful to be a part of this eternal work.
Favorite Vacation Spot — My favorite vacation spot is Bear Lake. My family and I go up there once a year and enjoy the wonderful sunshine and beauty around us. I have several good memories there and look forward to creating more.
My Family —I was raised in Riverton, Utah. I love living in Utah. I have six siblings who are my best friends and I enjoy every chance I can to spend time with them.
