I am thrilled to be teaching third grade at Ascent Academy in West Jordan and to be part of such a warm and dynamic community. Ascent Academy is a beautiful place to teach and learn, and I feel lucky to be in this profession doing what I love. I strive to create a caring, safe, engaging, and harmonious learning environment, which encourages students to believe in themselves and to do their personal best.
I grew up in Southern California and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Studies from California Polytechnic University, Pomona. I have been an elementary teacher for four years, and have been working with students in both primary and secondary schooling for more than ten years in California. I recently moved to Utah, and I am excited about the new experiences to come.
Outside of teaching, I enjoy traveling, watching movies, drinking coffee, being outdoors and spending time with my husband and dog.
