I have been teaching for more than 21 years, but this is my first year teaching in the 4th grade and what a delight it is!! My degree is in Elementary and Special Education with an emphasis with emotionally disturbed children. I have been with the Challis School District for two years, but our four children have attended Challis School District since 2012.
I had been away from teaching for six years to run a Christian Conference and Retreat Center here in Central Idaho. Now I am happy to be back in the classroom and working with children again. Being away from teaching has made me realize how thankful I am to be able to instruct students and make an everlasting impact on so many lives.
Challis, Idaho is surrounded by mountains, fresh air and beautiful people. I am happy to be a part of such a wonderful community.
Our motto in our classroom is: Today I will learn because I have the courage to take risks. I am brilliant, creative, and focused. I will take ownership of my work and respect others, and together we will grow! These are words that bring LIFE and create a positive environment in our classroom.
Please come by and visit us. I know you will love what you see!
