I have the fortunate opportunity to be the Gifted and Talented Facilitator at Wood River Middle School, where I have been teaching since 2012. I have also taught middle school life science and high school biology, chemistry, and microbiology. As an educator, my goals have always been to empower each of my students with the necessary skills and self-knowledge to ultimately achieve their dreams and goals for their life. I graduated in 2000 from Boise State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Biology--Secondary Education. In May 2015, I graduated from Arkansas State University earning a Master's of Science in Special Education--Gifted, Talented, and Creative. Beyond the classroom, I also have a passion for athletics and physical fitness that rival my passion for education. I often can be found helping kids on the track as either a full-time coach or as a volunteer. Outside of these areas, I am the mother of two children. Hobbies I enjoy include cycling, weight lifting, hiking, camping, backpacking, cross country skiing, gardening, baking, and making homemade jams, jellies and syrups from local wild plants and those I grow in my garden.
