Greetings! Thank you for taking time to explore our class site. This will be my tenth year at Purple Sage Elementary. Go Coyotes!! While working at PSE I have taught both fourth and fifth grade. I moved to Idaho to attend Northwest Nazarene University, where I earned a degree in Elementary Education. During my time at NNU, I ran for the Track and Field team, which is one of my most favorite college memories and, believe it or not, has played a large part in my perception of a classroom.
After teaching for a few years I decided to explore deeper into one of my passions, technology in the classroom. I completed a Master's degree in Educational Technology through Boise State University and have loved continually learning how to creatively integrate tech to enhance our classroom experiences.
Aside from exploring new technology opportunities for students, I enjoy hiking and camping, bow hunting, skiing and snowmobiling. Whenever possible I also try to capture the beautiful world we live in through photography!
I am so excited for the 2019-20 school year. I've always lived by the motto that "we are all life long learners". Fifth grade is an awesome year that moves quickly and covers much ground. We have some extraordinary activities planned for the year. So, I hope everyone had plenty of rest this summer, because fifth grade is here!!
