I am very thankful to be teaching at Ascent Academy in Lehi! It’s a wonderful place to be! ☺
I was born and raised in Spokane, Washington and currently live in Lehi, Utah. I graduated
from Brigham Young University in Elementary Education. After graduating, I served an
18-month mission in Hong Kong. Later, I received my Master's Degree from Western
Governors University in English Language Learning. I have taught 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th
graders in district, private, and public charter schools--in Utah and Arizona. I love teaching
and I love learning!
One of my favorite hobbies is reading and I hope to spread this enthusiasm to my students. I
also want my students to become confident, educated, and responsible citizens. I know every
student is capable of learning and progressing. I believe study skills and organization skills
are very important and I will help my students to develop these skills in order to become
It is very important to me that everyone treats one another kindly and respectfully. I will do
all I can to create a happy and safe space for my students in my classroom. We can all learn
from each other; we all have something worthwhile to offer one another.
On a personal level, some of my top priorities and interests are my family, friends, dogs,
sports, and reading--to name a few. ☺
