I graduated from University of Iowa in 1990 with a degree in Art. In addition to teaching. I work as a concrete artist and my work includes the wolverine in front of Wood River High School, the mutton buster at the Hailey information building, and various sculptures in the skate park. Before teaching, I have also worked for a variety of local non-profits doing social justice work including worked eight years for the Advocates for Survivors of Domestic Violence helping to form the programs that exist today. In 2010 I took a job as an ENL paraprofessional at Alturas Elementary working with kindergarten through fifth-grade helping support students of all ability levels with their academics. While working at Alturas I received my K-8 certification and found a place as part of the dual immersion team at Wood River Middle School. This is my fifth year teaching DI social studies and I will also finished a masters in English as a New Language through Boise Statein the spring of 2020. Next I will be working on my bilingual education certificate since I am the dual immersion social studies teacher for seventh grade as well as teaching two classes in English.
