I always tell my students that I so loved my time at Bellevue Elementary as a student that I was inspired to return as a teacher! This will be my 8th year teaching kindergarten as a Bellevue Bear and my 12th year overall! I graduated from the University of Idaho (Go Vandals!) with degrees in Early Childhood Development and Education, Special Education, and Elementary Education. I then had the privilege of student teaching here at Bellevue Elementary as well! After two years teaching special education in Klamath Falls, Oregon, my husband and I made the choice to move home to the Wood River Valley. I couldn't imagine a more wonderful place to raise our children. I am the proud mom to two adventurous kiddos!
