Why Teaching? — Teaching in Kindergarten is the best! What a beautiful transitional year, I get to be part of the magic when students realize they can read. I love the “Aha” moments when they make connections and relate to what we are learning.
Curriculum highlight — I love teaching the students about how the Bible was translated into English and why. What a beautiful journey to walk the students through, the time when Jesus Christ’s Church was removed from the Earth and then restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith.
Hobbies – I like to read. Once I start a book, I cannot put it down, so I usually wait until summer to read for joy. I like spending time in nature, creating things with my hands, trying new things, even working with power tools. I like gardening, being in the dirt, because I love the smell of the earth.
Family – I’ve been married for 30 years. My sweetheart and I are best friends. We have three children. We adopted two boys, and then after 17 years had a little miracle baby girl.
What brought you to AHS? – I observed in my neighbor and her children what I wanted for my children in education–brilliant kids, super grounded, well balanced. I came to an orientation at the school, and I loved what was said. It touched my heart. I knew this is where we needed to be.
What is unique about AHS for you? — I love the philosophy. I love being where the spirit teaches. If we allow that to happen there is a heart-to-heart connection, and the children learn. I love Kindergarten and will often use humor to connect with the students.
“I hope to leave with the students a love of learning. I want them to know that school is enjoyable and that their Heavenly Father has a plan just for them. I want them to be familiar with what it is to discern truth with the assistance of the Holy Ghost. I would love for my students to know that I love them and they are capable of achieving anything that they put their hearts to.”
