I have spent my life in Boise; I love Idaho’s proximity to the outdoors and really knowing the place I call home. After being raised in our public schools, I attended the College of Western Idaho, earning my AA before transferring to Boise State to complete my BA in Elementary Education. The middle schools ages had a much stronger pull and I thankfully ended up here. I am in my fifth year of teaching middle school math, all years spent here at West. Outside of teaching, I also love reading, basketball, and spending time with my aging pug, Mungo!
