My life has been about learning! I am a graduate of Alta High School in Sandy. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Whitworth College in Spokane, Washington. I went on to earn a Master’s Degree from Westminster College in Salt Lake City. I am also a National Board Certified Teacher, and have taught in-service classes to other teachers. I am now in my 24th year as a teacher – how time flies! Sunset Ridge is the fourth middle school where I have taught, and it is my favorite place to be. When I am not teaching, I love to read, watch movies, swim, and cross stitch… although not all at the same time! I am married and have an 8-year-old daughter and two hyper kittens.
