Hello families!

It is my mission this year to inspire your child to embrace learning, enjoy a challenge, and have fun along the way.   I am thrilled to celebrate my tenth year teaching in District 5 this year!  I am Nationally Board certified and Gifted and Talented certified.  I have taught second, third, and fourth grade, including gifted learners, and have been fortunate to work at both Lake Murray Elementary and Dutch Fork Elementary. 


I continue to take classes because I believe it is important to constantly learn and grow.  Teaching is my passion and I am so thankful to be doing what I love.  This will be my first year at Chapin Elementary.  I am so excited to join this brilliant team of educators and to teach where my kids go to school.  I look forward to an amazing year with you!


My adventerous family of five includes my husband Eric, chef extraordinare; Connor, a very energetic thirteen year old; nine-year-old Jace, the wrestler of the family; and six-year-old Addison, a future teacher or CEO in training!  We love animals and have many pets: two dogs, a cat, an African Gray parrot, a bearded dragon, and a hamster. 


We have recently relocated to Chapin where we enjoy spending as much time outside as possible.  My husband and I enjoy running, working out, and doing obstacle races.  I love to learn new things; my current favorite topics are: neuroscience, mindfulness and the environment.  I enjoy writing, painting, and doing crafts with the kids!  I truly do my best to live what I teach and teach what I live each day!  I am excited to get to know you this year.
