I am from Orem, Utah. I have been teaching for 14 years in both Alpine and Nebo district, where I taught 5th, 4th, and 3rd grade. I loved the experiences that I had teaching at my schools. I am very excited to teach 3rd Grade at our new Meadow Brook Elementary!

I love and live by the phrase "Live well, laugh often, love much". Life is great and I try to enjoy each and every part of it. Traveling is one of my favorite things to do, taking both planned and spontaneous trips! I have traveled to many different states and countries. I love learning about and experiencing different cultures. I speak Mandarin Chinese. Being active-playing sports and exercising are both important to me. I enjoy the outdoors-hiking, biking, camping, skiing, and swimming. I love to read! Roald Dahl is my most favorite and cherished author. I enjoy working outside in the yard. I am curious and love to find out how things work. I love technology and am excited to learn and try new things every day! I'm a very goal oriented person. I enjoy to-do-lists and schedules, but I am also very "low key" and like to relax and take it easy, like spending a night at home or going to movies and out to eat with friends and family.

I am passionate about teaching! I am constantly seeking opportunities to grow as a teacher and to reach each and every one of my students. The thing I love most about teaching is being with my students every day! I enjoy watching them grow and learning from them. I love "a-ha!" moments my students and I have together. I love that every day is different and there is always something amazing to learn in school. I can't wait to meet the students, parents, and staff at Meadow Brook!
