Teaching is my second career. It brings me the most joy. Helping children gain confidence in themselves and learn all they can about Jesus, and learning things from the children daily are what I cherish the most. I have been married since 1991; we have no children, but 5 cats (who are just like our children!), lots of Nieces and Nephews, as well as several God-children. We enjoy sporting events (Hockey), movies, and camping. I also like to read and do crafts.

I am a happily married mother of two grown daughters, one lovely granddaughter, and a true dog lover.  I love to travel with my family.  Sharing these experiences with children has made our adventures even more exciting! 

I am a devoted teacher who has been learning best teaching practices for many years.  I am passionate about helping young children grow into confident people.  I believe in teaching children to look for solutions, and to remember that they are not alone. I am truly blessed to love my work. I firmly believe God has a plan for each of us, and together we can achieve anything.

It makes my heart smile to see the look of joy on a child's face when they hear God's words. I want to be that teacher that makes a "true" difference in a child's life.  I believe every child should be valued and treated with respect as a creation of God.  An education should empower a child and help him or her make a positive contribution to our world. Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a real blessing. (Psalms 127:3) My husband and I have three grown children and two grandsons along with our three 4-legged friends. We have lived in Las Vegas for the past 25+ years. When not with my "children" (students) I enjoy reading, sewing and spending time at our home in Utah riding ATVs.

I have a degree in early childhood.

I've been a Pre-k teacher since 1992, and at Mountain View since 2000.
