1st Grade Teacher

My classroom at Cascade Schools is one of the places that I feel the most at home. I am able to create an environment and lessons that promote students to become creative thinkers, problem solvers, community members, and most important empathetic and kind to one another. I am supported by parents that are committed to their students success and surrounded by colleagues that are brilliant, funny, and passionate about their jobs. I am part of a community that believes in each child and that we can make a difference.
I graduated Boise State University in 2010 with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I worked in the McCall-Donnelly School District as a paraprofessional for four years and then in Leadore, Idaho as a 7th and 8th grade English/History teacher for three years, before returning to Cascade. I have been teaching first grade at Cascade Elementary since 2017. I was inspired by my grade school teacher to pursue teaching and implement many of her techniques in my classroom to make the atmosphere welcoming and the learning fun. I believe that my students are important and tell them every day. I strive to provide an environment where students feel that they are safe, welcomed, and that they belong. I look forward to many more years of teaching the brilliant students at Cascade Elementary.
In 2005, I moved to Cascade with my family. My husband George and I raised our four children here and are excited to watch our grandchildren learn and grow here too. I love to garden, read, swim, and spend time with family and friends.
