I was born in Montana and grew up in an Air Force family. I was fortunate to get to live in several states and countries as a child. I graduated from Mtn, Home High School, attending the University of Montana Western, and completed my degree at Boise State University. I continued my education and recently finished my Math Coaching Certificate. My husband and I both work for the Mtn. Home School District. I initially taught Special Education at West Elementary before becoming a Second Grade teacher at West. I have four children, Morgan, Hunter, Cooper, and Addison. Morgan and Hunter graduated from Mtn. Home High School and my twins are currently at Mtn. Home High School. In my free time, I enjoying spending time with my family and watching my children at their sporting events. We love watching football as a family and are Tampa Bay Buccaneer fans.
