I am excited to be teaching 5th grade at Mountainville Academy. I loved my time in 5th grade as an instructor and I am looking forward to working with more great students and wonderful co-workers. My fifth grade teacher, Mr. Bromley, is the reason I knew that teaching was for me. He showed me how exciting learning can be. I love to see that same spark of understanding in my students.
I grew up in Orem and have lived in Utah most my life. However, I lived in the Washington DC area and New York City, both for a short time. I graduated from Utah State and taught fourth grade and sixth grade for several years before staying home with my kids. During that time I taught myself how to bake and decorate cakes. I enjoyed making many birthday and wedding cakes as my hobby turned into something I was paid to do. I love spending time with my husband and three kids. Vacations are my favorite thing because I get to spend them with my family. I love planning my next vacation almost as much as I love being on one.
