In 1997, I began teaching 6th grade language arts and social studies in California. Although I loved teaching in the Bay Area, I longed for the simplicity and beauty of teaching in a small community tucked away in the mountains. Luckily, in 2000, I was able to take a job in the Wood River Valley. I taught seventh grade until 2015. Currently, I am teaching 8th grade literature and language. I think English is a wonderful, rich language. I have always been fascinated by the origins of words and the nuances of the language. I love the opportunity I have to share my love of this language with my students. Teaching has also given me the chance to share my passion not only for the language, but also for literature, poetry, drama, and music which I've always tried to integrate in my lessons in order to provide students with a more holistic and fun education. Ultimately, being a teacher is all about sharing knowledge, facilitating learning for others, and loving what you do!
