It's hard to believe I am beginning my 7th year in this fantastic school! My first two years at White Pine were spent as a paraprofessional. The following year I was employed by Cassia School District as a Behavior Specialist while I finished the teacher certification process. This is my 4th year as a 6th grade teacher. I received my bachelor's degree in Social Sciences from Ashford University and continued on to complete my alternate route to teacher certification through the ABCTE program. I also hold a certification as a Children's Psychiatric Rehabilitation Specialist and continue to work in the mental health field, as well.
When I am enjoying myself outside of work, you will find me directing children's theatre. I find that my careers and my passion for theatre become intertwined and all three allow me to make a difference in the lives of the community's children. What a blessing! Speaking of blessings, my dearest blessings are my two children, Drew, 31 and Mercedes 19. They are truly my greatest accomplishments!
