Grades taught & where?

 1st at West Weber Elementary, 2nd at Roosevelt

Education (include any certifications or endorsements you have obtained).

 Working on my Math Endorsement- I am halfway done!

Who/What inspired you to go into education?

 My Dad was a teacher and Mom worked as an aid in the schools. It's been something that I've wanted to do since I was in 1st or 2nd grade. However, when I was in high school and starting college, I wanted to go into medicine. Just before I left for college, I volunteered in a 6th grade orchestra class. Once I was on campus, I realized that I kept thinking about the students in that class and thinking about teaching so I switched back to education. Best choice that I made.

What do you do when you aren't in school?

 I have many interests so I do many things when I'm not in school. I read, color, do homework (for my endorsement), sometimes do crafts like learning to paint or quilting with Mom, gardening and canning. I enjoy watching superhero movies and shows- especially the Flash. I also like to play the cello (but I am shy about it). I love exploring places (new and old).

Favorite quote or your philosophy on education?

 My favorite quote is "I teach because your life is worth my time." I love this because our students are worth our time and effort and as we put those in we will grow to love them more deeply and we will find what works for them. I believe in trying new things and in asking my students what they think they need. My other favorite quotes are from some of my past students. They are "You can do it!" and "I love you."

Favorite book?

 Do I have to pick one? I love Elantris by Brandon Sanderson. One of my favorite books since I was a child was Morris the Moose has a cold. My mom and older brother would read it with funny voices. And shhh, don't tell Ms. Lundell, but one of my other favorite series is Alcatraz Smedry vs. the Evil Librarians by Brandon Sanderson. I also really love The Daring Prince Dashing and Ish.

Something Interesting about you:

 I worked at Disneyland by doing the Disney College Program three times. I also worked at the Loveland Living Planet Aquarium. In college, I did ballroom dancing.

Your favorite things:

 I love notes and pictures from my students. I have a huge sweet tooth so if it's sweet and unhealthy, I will love it.

What is your favorite Leader In Me habit and why?

 Habit 1: Be Proactive is my favorite because it is the foundation for all the others. I also love Habit 6: Synergize because everything gets a little bit better and more interesting when we add the thoughts of another person.
