I grew up with my two older brothers and parents in beautiful Tualatin, Oregon. After high school, I moved to Nampa where I attended Northwest Nazarene University, Go Nighthawks! I graduated with a bachelors degree in Elementary Education and went on to get a masters degree in Special Education. This is my second year at West and my ninth year of teaching overall. I love going to the park with my son Juju as well as staying home with my dogs and husband to watch football, GO DENVER BRONCOS!
