This is my 14th year teaching in Idaho, where I was born and raised. My career has led me through many different experiences and opportunities. After graduating with a Bilingual Elementary Degree from Boise State, I began my teaching career at a Title I school which primarily served English Language Learners, and I have taught in charter schools and other Title I schools in the Treasure Valley.
While pursuing my Master's in Bilingual Literacy at Boise State University, I also became interested in adding a certificate in teaching mathematics. In 2015, I received my Master's and a Mathematics Consulting Teacher Certificate. I also spent a year working at the State Department of Education in the Special Education Department, where I learned more about the rules and requirements to serve all of our students.
I packed up all of these experiences, and came to the Wood River Valley where I hope to spend the rest of my teaching career. I have loved the opportunity I've had to improve my Spanish, and connect with inspiring teachers, students, and families. I enjoy spending time exploring all the valley has to offer with my husband, Zach, and dog, Zoey. Teaching at Alturas continues to make me the best educator I can be!
