I am excited to "set sail" and explore and make new discoveries this year. I have been teaching for 25 years and love it. I have taught for Challenger School, Jordan School District, and have owned my own preschool. This is my fifth year teaching first grade for Summit Academy. In my free time I love to read books while sitting by my backyard pond. I also love shopping and can out shop anyone I know. I have four children: three girls and one boy: My oldest daughter just started her second year of college. I have a son in 10th grade, a daughter in 7th, and my youngest daughter is in 5th grade. I also have 10 pet fish that live in my backyard pond. My passion is teaching children to read!
